Dr. Tim Mousseau receives the Governor’s Award for Excellence in Scientific Awareness


The Governor's Award was established in 1985 by the Drug Science Foundation to honor specifically an individual or team within the state whose achievements and contributions to science in South Carolina merit special recognition and to promote wider awareness of the quality and extent of scientific activity in South Carolina. Since 1989 the award has been under the joint sponsorship of the Governor’s office and South Carolina Academy of Science.


The Excellence in Scientific Awareness Award is presented to a candidate whose achievements have had significant impact on science education in South Carolina, have promoted wider awareness of science, and are of such high quality that they merit special recognition. These achievements may be in the realm of formal education activities or service to science through non-formal education in the various media, and should impact science education or science awareness on a regional and national basis as well as South Carolina.
