Established in 2016 and first awarded in 2017, The Society Scholars Prize is intended to honor postdocs performing at the highest levels, who are also managing additional familial obligations and adjusting to being new parents.

This merit-based Society Scholars Prize is awarded annually to at least ten full time postdoc researchers who complete a brief application and personal statement.  They are reviewed by a selection panel made up of MSK faculty parents with final approval from The Society.  The prize provides a cash award for up to four years, and is open to postdocs at MSK who have a dependent child/children under four years of age.
