The Young Scientist Prizes of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics were established in 2007. The recipients of the awards in a given year should have a maximum of 8 years of research experience following their PhD, and should have performed original work of outstanding scientific quality.
The IUPAP Commission C18 for Mathematical Physics awarded its Young Scientist Prizes for the first time in 2009.
