Global Search Is On for the World’s Next Brilliant Scientists

Feb 19
Global Search Is On for the World’s Next Brilliant Scientists Graduate student Qian Wang received the graduate Alltech Young Scientist Award in 2012 for her research on preventing greenhouse gas emissions (nitrous oxide) from invading agricultural soil.

In 2013, thousands of students will test their intellect, innovation and scientific foresight in a worldwide competition. But only one graduate and one undergraduate student from across the globe will emerge as the next Alltech Young Scientists in 2014.

Registration is now open for undergraduate and graduate students interested in submitting experimental research or scientific review papers for the 2013-2014 Alltech Young Scientist Competition. Regional winners will receive cash prizes, and finalists will be invited to compete for top honors during Alltech’s 30th International Symposium in 2014. The winning graduate and undergraduate students will receive a $10,000 scholarship and a $5,000 scholarship respectively.

Scientific papers submitted may cover topics including veterinary science, animal nutrition, feed technology, sustainability, agricultural management, marketing, environmental science and economics. Papers will be judged by a panel of industry professionals. Registration and paper submission is available online and will close Dec. 31, 2013.

“For Alltech, what could be more important than rewarding young people who are driven by science?” said Dr. Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech. “Every year, more and more students send us their research with hopes of standing out in a crowd of candidates representing countries from around the world. Alltech is proud to provide an avenue for future leaders in diverse fields of science to compete at the highest level.”

The 2012-2013 regional finalists will travel to Lexington, Ky., to compete in the finale during the 29th International Symposium, May 19-22, 2013. For more information about the Alltech Young Scientist Competition, visit
