How to apply

The awards application process for 2024 awards is now open here. The deadline is 23:59 on Saturday 20th January 2024. Candidates will be notified whether they have been shortlisted in February 2024, and we expect interviews for shortlisted candidates to take place in April 2024.

Award winners will be asked to present their work in a 10 minute slot (with questions) at a regular CSAR lecturer evening. Subsequently this presentation will be posted on the CSAR website, unless it contains confidential or unpublished results. They are also expected to submit a short (350 word) report on how the award was used, within nine months of receipt of the award.

Please send any queries, or report any issues arising during your application, to the secretary of the Student Award Committee, Jane Baker, at
