Nominations are closed for The Shaw Prizes 2016. Thank you very much for all the nominations and support. Adjudication of the nominations will shortly begin and announcement of winners will be made in May/June 2016.

All valid nominations received will be reviewed by the Shaw Prize Selection Committee for each of the three fields namely, Astronomy, Life Science and Medicine and Mathematical Sciences.  Members on the Committees are renowned scientists in these disciplines and they will work hard in the next few months deliberating over each nomination.  The Shaw Prize Council awards the prizes each year on the basis of the recommendations of the three Selection Committees.

A change worth noting is that the monetary value of each of the Shaw Prize in Astronomy, Life Science and Medicine and Mathematical Sciences shall be increased from US Dollar One Million to One Million Two Hundred Thousand commencing the year 2016.
