AAAS Kavli Science Journalism Awards

The AAAS Kavli Science Journalism Awards are an internationally recognized measure of excellence in science journalism and are awarded annually to individuals (rather than institutions, publishers or employers) for coverage of the sciences, engineering and mathematics.

Administered by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and endowed by the foundation in 2009, these independently juried awards have honored distinguished reporting on science by professional journalists since 1945. The selection of winners is made by panels of journalists who judge the work of their peers. Awards are given internationally for reporting in newspapers, television, audio, online and children’s news. 

The awards are announced the end of each year, followed by a special ceremony held during the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science – the world's largest multidisciplinary scientific society and a leading publisher of cutting-edge research through its Science family of journals. The AAAS has individual members in more than 91 countries around the globe.
