Paul Baran Young Scholar Award

Learn More About the Award

The Paul Baran Young Scholar Award recognizes a diverse group of outstanding young scientists and engineers anywhere in the world who have demonstrated exceptional capabilities and potential. Academic faculty and mentors nominate Young Scholars each year.

The Young Scholars are a community of scientists dedicated to improving the world by advancing the frontiers of telecommunications and networking. We honor their creative work in the spirit of the boldness and vision exemplified by Nobel Prize winner Guglielmo Marconi. Young Scholars are part of a prestigious community and enjoy unique benefits:

  • Inspirational networking with industry luminaries and a fast-rising cohort.
  • International recognition with immediate global credibility being given to their work.
  • Social impact through the Young Scholar’s Celestini Project designed to help students in developing countries use technology to solve local issues.

Nominations for the 2018 Paul Baran Young Scholar Award will be taken until June 30, 2018. Join the Marconi Society mailing list for continued updates on the Young Scholar Award
