Ivan Vitev knew he had been nominated for a Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers because he was asked to provide curriculum vitae very quickly for the review process.
Two months later, when the first in a staggered list of awards was announced, he didn’t see his name and assumed that he had not been selected.
In fact, background checks were still going on, so it was another couple of months before the Los Alamos National Laboratory physicist heard that he had in fact won one of the most prestigious awards for young scientists in the country.
Various universities and federal agencies, including the Department of Energy, nominate outstanding candidates and then commit to support their research for up to five years.
“These extraordinarily gifted young scientists and engineers represent the best in our country,” President Obama said in a White House announcement. “With their talent, creativity and dedication, I am confident that they will lead their field in new breakthroughs and discoveries and help us use science and technology to lift up our nation and the world.”
