AAAS-David and Betty Hamburg Award for Science Diplomacy

A Gift in Memory of David and Betty Hamburg


Drs. David and Betty Hamburg helped shed light on the many ways in which science can serve as a common and nonpolitical language, bringing nations together through collaborative research and innovation to address enormous challenges and find solutions that benefit us all.

This endowment will, in perpetuity, underscore the Hamburgs’ unparalleled commitment to building bridges through science while acknowledging and celebrating outstanding contributions to science diplomacy.

Through this prize, AAAS will annually celebrate the Hamburgs, their exceptional achievements, and their persistent pursuit to further peace, health, and prosperity for all.

We gratefully acknowledge your funding support.
