Ede and Ravenscroft Postgraduate Research Student Prize

Nominate yourself or another member of research staff to win this year's prize.

Sadly, due to circumstances beyond our control, we are unable to award the Ede & Ravenscroft Postgraduate Research Student prize this year. Anyone who has already been nominated will be contacted separately in due course.

The Ede and Ravenscroft prize is an annual award for the best postgraduate research student. It was first awarded in 1991. It is generously funded by Ede and Ravenscroft, appointed robemakers to HM The Queen.


What you could get if you're selected as the winner or a shortlisted finalist.

The winner will receive £1,000 from Ede and Ravenscroft.

Each shortlisted finalist will receive a £50 Amazon gift card funded by the University.

Nominate yourself

If you're a research student, you can nominate yourself for the prize using the nomination form.

To nominate yourself for the prize, you need to give details of your research work in terms that can be understood by a non-specialist reader.

You should then submit the form to your Head of Department so they can comment on your work.

How the winner is chosen

After the nomination deadline, the Prize Committee will consider all nominations.

The Prize Committee is chaired by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research) and includes the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Doctoral and International) and members of the faculties, School of Management and Doctoral College.
