The Volvo Environment Prize has become one of the scientific world’s most respected environmental prizes.
Sponsoring Agency: Independent Foundation
Type of Grant: Award
Deadline: January 10, 2022
Laureates represent all fields of environmental and sustainability studies and initiatives.
The Prize is awarded by an independent foundation. A Scientific Committee does the initial screening and evaluation of candidates. Internationally renowned scientists in the Prize Jury make the final selection of prize laureate.
The Prize is awarded annually and consists of a hand-crafted diploma, a glass sculpture, and a cash award of SEK 1.5 million (approximately EUR 150,000 or USD 160,000). The award ceremony is held in Stockholm in November each year.
The research of nominees should be based on scientific grounds but must clearly show impacts outside of the specific discipline.
