The Michael Brin Prize in Dynamical Systems, abbreviated as the Brin Prize, is awarded to mathematicians who have made outstanding advances in the field of dynamical systems and are within 14 years of their PhD. The prize is endowed by and named after Michael Brin, whose son Sergey Brin, is a co-founder of Google. Michael Brin is a retired mathematician at the University of Maryland and a specialist in dynamical systems.

The first prize was awarded in 2008, and since 2009, it has been awarded bi-annually. Artur Avila, the 2011 awardee, went on to win the Fields Medal in 2014.
