Sidney prize is a monthly journalism award that is given out by The Sidney Hillman Foundation to “outstanding investigative journalism in service of the common good”. This award is bestowed on work published in an American magazine, newspaper or online news site.
The Hillman Prize was established in 1950 by the Sidney Hillman Foundation to recognize journalism that is deeply reported, has impact, and focuses on the common good. The foundation awards the Hillman Prizes in the United States and Canada. The prizes are given out by an independent board of judges, whose selection is based on the criteria set forth in the Hillman Prize guidelines.
One of the many outstanding achievements that Sidney achieved was a significant change in course distribution at Yale College. He believed that science majors should emerge from Yale with a deep appreciation of the humanities and social sciences. He therefore created new courses in the humanities and social sciences, which were required for all students who entered Yale as a science major.
In addition, Sidney was committed to fostering the interdisciplinary approach to learning that Yale has long been known for. He also made it a point to emphasize the importance of scientific research on campus. During his time at Yale, Sidney edited a book on the history of scientific research at Yale and made efforts to enhance the visibility of the sciences at the university.
He was a man of high character, and one of the most valued members of the Yale faculty. He was frank and direct, and he spoke his mind with respect. Whenever he spoke at the departmental faculty meetings, he had everyone’s attention.
His scholarly contributions to the field of molecular biology were exceptional, and his work has greatly contributed to our understanding of the biology of the human body. He has won numerous awards and honors for his work in the field, including a National Medal of Science.
Although he was a very successful scientist, he was a man of great humanity as well. He was a very kind and caring friend, and he was able to make an enormous difference in the lives of many people. He always had time to help out and encourage other people in his community.
He also cared for animals. He was a longtime member of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and he often served as a member of the board of directors of his local animal shelter.
After completing his undergraduate studies at Columbia, Sidney worked in nuclear physics for a while, before deciding to change his direction. He took an introductory course in molecular biology and soon found himself fascinated with the field of DNA replication.
He then went on to receive a doctorate in biophysics from the University of Colorado. He then became a professor at Hamilton College. He served as associate dean, provost, and College Marshall, and he was named a fellow of Hamilton College in 1996.
