The NAE Charles Draper Prize, awarded for advancement of engineering and the education of the public about engineering .

The U.S. National Academy of Engineering annually awards the Draper Prize,[1] which is given for the advancement of engineering and the education of the public about engineering. It is one of three prizes that constitute the "Nobel Prizes of Engineering" — the others are the Academy's Russ and Gordon Prizes. The winner of each of these prizes receives $500,000. The Draper prize is named for Charles Stark Draper, the "father of inertial navigation", an MIT professor and founder of Draper Laboratory.
