Overview:

The Marine Science Student Award has replaced the former Tripartite Award and will be first awarded in 2019. The purpose of the Award is to raise the status of Marine Science education in the U. K., as well as to encourage research among undergraduates in any marine science discipline. The Society offers an annual award for undergraduate students who have demonstrated excellence in Marine Science research through 3rd year dissertations or projects. University departments in the UK are invited to submit suitable dissertations from final year undergraduate students, with deadlines set usually for the end of 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.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

You must be a member of this organization to apply for this award - become a member. Applicants must be student members of either the CSMS, IMarEST or SUT. Supervisors of Challenger Society applicants should be full members of the Challenger Society.
