Selection of laureates for the Kilby International Awards is based on the breadth of the individual's contribution to society through science, technology, innovation, invention and/or education. Laureates are chosen without regard to race, religion, gender or national origin.

Neither self-nominations nor internal corporate nominations are appropriate. All nominations are confidential. Identity of the nominating individual or organization is kept in strict confidence.

Nominees must be living and must personally have made a significant contribution to science, technology, innovation, invention or education. Laureates must be present for the symposium and awards ceremony.

Normally, the prizes are awarded to one person, but may be shared by partners in a specific activity.

Young Innovator nominees are individuals under 40 whose past accomplishments and future potential indicate exceptional promise. They are persons for whom early recognition might mean significant and timely freedom and support for their maturing talents, enabling them to make even greater contributions in the future. Young Innovator candidates might be very young or very close to the senior laureate age.

The awards committee may, from time to time, make an institutional award and/or a lifetime achievement award.

All Kilby Laureates fulfill the Foundation's goal to provide role models for society's future leaders, the young people of today.
