Science and Math Defeated scholarship for excellence in the sciences and maths?

I’ve been thinking about humanity recently and wondering: should I host an essay contest, for best path-breaking essay in the sciences or maths? The prize could include recognition on my blog, alongside a cash prize. It would almost certainly be modest, but nothing to sneeze at, perhaps $50 and a well-constructed certificate. After all, I do not (yet) have institutional support. I was looking at this “Fastweb” website and wondering also if I could post it on there, but I don’t know the rules! I will perhaps investigate this, but I just wanted to throw the idea out there.

  1. Recognition on your misinformed blog would be worthless, and the idea of offering this as a prize is absurd. It is as stupid as if a mention on http://www.davidicke.com were offered as a prize. I am sorry to hear that you do not have institutional support yet, and I really think you should have it – from the kind of institution that can can give you the treatment you so clearly need.

  2. I will not respond to Angel Plume’s mean-spirited and misogynistic remarks.

    Paul, I am confused by your simultaneous insults toward me and your support of my receiving support. Could you please elaborate?

    Cheers,
    NS
