Royal Society Kohn Award
This award was made for excellence in engaging the public with science.
Sir Ralph Kohn FRS
The Royal Society Kohn Award was for UK-based early-career stage scientists who had undertaken high-quality public engagement activities which had a strategic impact on institutions, organisations and cultures, and whose career and future public engagement activities benefited from the award.
The medal was of silver gilt and was accompanied by a grant of £7,500 for science communication activities and a gift of £2,500.
The award was supported by the Kohn Foundation and was first awarded in 2005.
