$50,000 Frank Annunzio Awards
The Christopher Columbus Fellowship Foundation is now accepting nominations for the 2005 $50,000 Frank Annunzio Awards honoring ?cutting edge? innovations, and providing incentive for continuing research and/or a specific project. The awards will be bestowed on living United States citizens who are making or have recently made significant and positive beneficial contributions.
One $25,000 Frank Annunzio Award will be presented to an individual who is making a beneficial impact on society through talent, knowledge, and determination in the Science/Technology field, and one new $25,000 award will be presented in the Alternative Energy Sources (AES) field.
