The Heineken Young Scientists Awards are intended to give talented young scientists and scholars extra encouragement. They are presented simultaneously with the Heineken Prizes to talented young researchers whose outstanding work sets an example for other young scientists and scholars.
The winners of the Heineken Young Scientists Awards also help popularise the disciplines in which the Heineken Prizes are awarded, making them ideal ambassadors. They are active in the same domaine of science and scholarship as the laureates of the Heineken Prizes.
The Heineken Young Scientists Awards consist of a work of art designed by Jeroen Henneman (Amsterdam) and EUR 10,000. The prizes are funded by the same foundations as the Heineken Prizes.
