Drake Awards 2020 Sponsorship Benefits

About the Drake Awards

The Drake Awards celebrate exemplary contributions to astrobiology through scientific research and space exploration. The award honors Frank Drake, whose Drake Equation first identified the specific factors necessary for the emergence of life in the Universe and the evolution of technological civilizations.

This honor is given at the discretion of the Board of Trustees of the SETI Institute, based on nominations from its Science Advisory Board. The honoree is presented a cash award and trophy, and is invited to describe their research at a public ceremony.

The SETI Institute has named Jason Wright the recipient of the 2019 Drake Award. Wright is an associate professor of astronomy and astrophysics at Penn State and a member of its Center for Exoplanets and Habitable Worlds. Drake Award recipients are nominated by the SETI Institute’s Science Advisory Board and confirmed by the SETI Institute’s Board of Trustees.
