Awards for Excellence in Research

Presented annually, the Mensa Foundation’s Awards for Excellence in Research are given internationally for outstanding research on intelligence, intellectual giftedness, and related fields.

Papers may cover any aspect of intelligence or intellectual giftedness. Examples include, but are not limited to, research from the fields of education, psychology, sociology, neurology, physiology, biochemistry, or psychometrics.

If you have published an appropriate paper in a peer-reviewed journal or presented it at a peer-reviewed conference within the past three years, please consider submitting it for award consideration. As many as 10 awards of $500 are given to the best published papers.
