People want and need recognition for their work. And it’s not just vanity that is served. Awards help to inspire other people to do their best. They set standards that people strive to match and exceed. They even change how people think.

NAYS firmly believes that motivating young scientists (researchers / professionals) and utilizing their capabilities by better orientation, improvisation and execution would definitely bring a remarkable boom of science and technology in Pakistan. For the sake of appreciating the young researchers we announced the awards for best research work/projects last year. The awards will announced each year in different disciplines of sciences and  award is titled as

”The Best Young Scientist Award”. Recognition and words of appreciation add positive energy and defiantly improve efficiency.


Our very award activity was announced last year in September 2011 in celebration of International Year of Chemistry. NAYS team will continue awards for each year and will bring the Best Young Researchers from each disciplines. InshaAllah.

    Dear NAYS Team,
    Hope you have had a nice time. Just a short note to enquire from you about the application deadline and form for the NYAS Best Young Scientist Award series 2013. I tried to find details on the NAYS web link but I couldn’t find any. Could you please let me know/confirm about any information related to this? I’m desperately interested to participate in this competition based on my research excellence achievements. I’m PhD Student under the age of 27 and so far have got publication impact factor around 25. I can hope you will consider my request favourably and would like to share with me further information like how and when I can apply for this competition.
    I look forward to hear from you in the near future

    Best Regards,
    HMN Iqbal
