President Barack Obama has named two Indian-Americans among 102 scientists as recipients of a presidential award - the highest honour bestowed by the US on young science and engineering professionals.

The winners, including Karunesh Ganguly of San Francisco VA Medical Center and Hardeep Singh of Houston VA Medical Center, will receive the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers at a ceremony here next year.

"The impressive achievements of these early-stage scientists and engineers are promising indicators of even greater successes ahead," Obama said in a White House statement.

"We are grateful for their commitment to generating the scientific and technical advancements that will ensure America's global leadership for many years to come," he said.

The awards, established by President Bill Clinton in 1996, are coordinated by the Office of Science and Technology Policy within the Executive Office of the President.

Awardees are selected for their pursuit of innovative research at the frontiers of science and technology and their commitment to community service as demonstrated through scientific leadership, public education, or community outreach.
