The Clay Mathematics Institute announces that the 2014 Clay Research Awards have been made to Maryam Mirzakhani and Peter Scholze.

Maryam Mirzakhani is recognised for her many and significant contributions to geometry and ergodic theory, in particular to the proof of an analogue of Ratner's theorem on unipotent flows for moduli of flat surfaces.

Peter Scholze is recognised for his many and significant contributions to arithmetic algebraic geometry, particularly in the development and applications of the theory of perfectoid spaces.
