Rolex Awards are given every two years. Applications have opened for the 2014 Awards, which will be exclusively devoted to young candidates. This means only those aged between 18 and 30 years are eligible to apply. The first set of Awards for Young Laureates took place in 2009 with the idea of supporting visionary young men and women at a critical juncture in their careers.

Applicants are asked to submit projects that tackle the world’s most pressing issues in five areas: science and health, applied technology, exploration and discovery, the environment, and cultural heritage. Projects are judged on their feasibility, originality, potential for sustained impact and, above all, on the candidates’ spirit of enterprise. Projects are examined rigorously to choose those that best meet the criteria and an independent Jury selects five winners from a shortlist.

Each Young Laureate will receive 50,000 Swiss francs over a period of two years. In addition, Rolex ensures all winners receive access to its network of more than 100 past Laureates, as well as the benefit of international publicity through media coverage and the Rolex Awards website.
