Pro Scientia, Pro Arte and Junior Pro Scientia Gold Medals

In 1988, the Council established three awards in recognition of the outstanding research and art achievements of secondary school and higher-education students. The so-called Pro Scientia and Pro Arte Gold Medals are designed to encourage higher-education students to further develop their creativity and gain in-depth theoretical and practical knowledge in their particular field of research. The Junior Pro Scientia Gold Medals are, in turn, awarded to young researchers who obtain outstanding results in TDK (Student Research Societies) as secondary school students.

These three awards may go to young researchers and artists who are outstanding in their particular field and have proved their talent in the form of prize-winning research papers presented at the National Conference, other conference presentations and published papers, published creative writings, or participation in art exhibitions. In other words, Gold Medals are awarded in recognition of a student's extraordinary overall achievement and aptitude and not for one particularly outstanding contribution to the National Conference. Since 1989, 45 Pro Scientia Gold Medals have been awarded at the closing ceremony of the National Conference on each occasion. To these, one so-called Junior Pro Scientia Gold Medal and two Pro Arte Gold Medals were added in 2003 and 2005, respectively. The Junior Pro Scientia Gold Medal is awarded only if a minimum of 30 secondary school students submit their papers to the National Conference.

Ever since its establishment, the Gold Medal has been presented to students by the President of the Council, together with the President of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in the ceremonial hall of the Academy.

Awardees are given the Medal, alongside a small gilded and enamelled badge, which repeats the main motif of the Medal, and an official certificate.
