Since its launch in 2012, the Golden Goose Award has celebrated researchers whose silly, odd, or obscure sounding, federally-funded research has returned serious benefits to society — making us safer, healthier, and more prosperous. The Award shares the stories behind how these scientific breakthroughs happen.
The Golden Goose Award has strong bipartisan support from the U.S. Congress, and awardees are honored each year at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. where Members of Congress from both parties speak to the importance of federal funding for scientific research.
The AAAS is the fiduciary for the Golden Goose Award. Your tax-deductible gift to AAAS to support the Golden Goose Award will have an immediate impact. More information on sponsorship opportunities for the Award is available here.
Thank you for your generosity.
