The science prizes will go to linguist Laimutė Balodė, who lives in Latvia, historian Katarzyna Korzeniewska–Wolek from Poland, engineer Algirdas Marchertas and biologist Ramūnas Stepanauskas, both based in the US.

The prizes are aimed at encouraging Lithuanian researchers working abroad to serve as Lithuania's scientific ambassadors and acquaint the Lithuanian society with prominent scientists of Lithuanian origin.

The size of the science prize is 13,000 litas (EUR 3,770). They will be handed out later this year.
