The SIAM Activity Group on Computational Science and Engineering Early Career Prize (SIAG/CSE Early Career Prize) is awarded every two years to one post-PhD early career researcher in the field of computational science and engineering for outstanding, influential, and potentially long-lasting contributions to the field within seven years of receiving the PhD or equivalent degree as of January 1 of the award year. The contributions must be contained in a paper or papers published in English in peer-reviewed journals.

The candidate’s work must contain significant research contributions to the development and use of mathematical and computational tools and methods for the solution of scientific and engineering problems. The qualifying contribution(s) for which the award is made must be publicly available and may belong to any aspect of computational science and engineering in its broadest sense.

For the 2021 award, the candidate must have been awarded their PhD no earlier than January 1, 2014, and no later than the nomination deadline. Current graduate students are not eligible for this prize.

- Nominator’s letter of recommendation for candidate
- Candidate’s CV
- Two or three letters of support from experts in the field

The SIAG/CSE Early Career Prize includes a certificate containing the citation. SIAM will reimburse the recipient for reasonable travel expenses incurred in attending the award ceremony.

The prize will next be awarded at 2021 SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering.

The Chair of the SIAM Activity Group on Computational Science and Engineering and the Chair of the Prize Committee will announce the award at the SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering and present the award to the recipient. An announcement of the award will appear in *SIAM News*, and on the activity group's website and newsletter.
