|THE SES EXPLORER AWARDS|
Echoing the Scientific Exploration Society (SES) long history of worldwide exploration and pioneering leadership, our quest to encourage ‘Pioneers with Purpose’ is the primary focus of the SES Explorer Awards, designed to support inspiring leaders through scientific exploration at the frontiers of human discovery. SES seeks to enhance careers by providing high profile Awards for projects that will leave a lasting legacy and benefit. SES seeks the rising stars who could become major players in the next generation of explorers, willing to take on risks in a sensible way and who share the values of grit, curiosity, integrity and leadership that pioneers like SES Founder John Blashford-Snell expound.
Over the next decade, SES aims to showcase the finest feats of contemporary explorers alongside a new generation who can be inspired by them. SES believes the values expressed through the best kind of leadership, exposing integrity, understanding risk, pursuing scientific excellence and endeavour, are all values that the world urgently needs today to navigate the different choices facing humanity.

The SES Explorer Awards Committee are busy reading the incredible number of applications submitted. Selecting the shortlist, let alone the winners for each of the seven Awards available this year, is challenging to say the least. It gives us tremendous reassurance that the spirit of pioneering and purposeful exploration is stronger than ever. The SES are indebted to the supporters it partners with to develop these Awards, and who share its vision to support and celebrate the 'Pioneers with Purpose' in whose capable hands the future of scientific exploration lies.
SES is also extremely proud of ALL those who applied for the SES Explorer Awards this year. The strength and depth of applications is extraordinary and each one is worthy of support as they head out on their quest for knowledge. Applicants this year represented 14 nationalities, testament to the global reach of the Awards.
