The National Thailand Science Council under the Royal Patronage sees the importance in building a new generation of manpower in sciences and technologies so that they will become highly competent scientists and technologists of the country in the future. This will lead to national research and innovation strength that is vital for sustainable socio-economic development. On the occasion of the 73rd anniversary of the National Thailand Science Council under the Royal Patronage this year, the Council initiated the Young Rising Stars of Science awards in 3 levels: Gold, Silver, and Bronze. The prizes were awarded to the final year students in all fields of sciences from all universities in the country whose senior projects in sciences or technologies are outstanding.
Besides honoring these students, the awards will also inspire the students to continue their studies at the graduate level. It is hoped that these students will become scientists or technologists with high competency at the national and international levels.
