Young Scientist Research Prizes – 2019 competition & prize ceremony
15 August 2019 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pmFree
Of our eight finalists, only four will win the first prize of $1,000 for their respective categories, with the runners-up receiving $500.
To foster and recognise excellence in Victoria’s early career scientists, the Royal Society of Victoria has established four prestigious competitive prizes open to Victorian students in their final year of doctoral candidature, in all areas of the Biomedical & Health Sciences, Biological Sciences (Non-human), Earth Sciences and Physical Sciences.
Following assessment of applications across the four categories, eight finalists will be selected to present their work to our audience. Of the eight finalists, only four will win the first prize of $1000 for their respective categories.
Each of the short-listed candidates will be required to give a 15 minute oral presentation before a general audience. In addition to the merits of their scientific work, finalists will be judged on their ability to make their work accessible and interesting to an audience uninitiated in their field of endeavour.
Winners will be announced at a special function following the presentations at the Royal Society of Victoria’s Hall.
