Overview:

The Marine Science Student Award has replaced the former Tripartite Award and will be first awarded in 2018. The purpose of the Award is to raise the status of oceanographic education in the U. K., as well as to encourage oceanographic research among undergraduates in ocean sciences, geography, environmental sciences or related disciplines. The Society offers an annual award for undergraduate students who have demonstrated excellence in oceanographic research through project research. Letters of invitation are sent to relevant University departments in the U. K. inviting them to submit suitable dissertations from final year undergraduate students, with deadlines set usually for early July.

Students can only be entered by the Convenor of the final year dissertation module from universities located within the U. K. Only one submission will be accepted from each department and it should be of outstanding quality. Prizes are awarded after consideration by a panel drawn from the Challenger Society's Council.

The winning student will receive a cheque for £500. In exceptional circumstances the Award may be shared. All winning students will receive one year's complimentary membership of the Society.
