About these awards
These Birkbeck Public Engagement Awards will build on the College’s tradition of socially engaged research and its historical mission to engage with a wide and diverse range of people outside of academia, to recognise and celebrate those researchers who have undertaken innovative and exemplary public engagement activities.
Applications have now opened and entrants can be at any level in their career. Public engagement activities on any scale are welcome.
Lunchtime launch and Q&A
The Launch is taking place at RUS (30) 101 on Monday 27 November 2017 from 12pm-2pm, and will introduce the Awards, give an overview of the application form and address any questions you may have about the application process. Attendees need to register here by 20 November.
Deadline for entries: 29 January 2018
Call for entries
The Birkbeck Graduate Research School (BGRS) aims to highlight the activities and successes of our research student community. We are pleased to announce a £300 book voucher prize which will be awarded to a Birkbeck PhD student able to demonstrate the most notable contribution to their field while undertaking their postgraduate research in 2016/17. Examples or successes or activities might include:
- A publication with a highly ranked publisher (or which has resulted in a high level of citations if this is appropriate to your discipline)
- An invitation to speak at a conference
- A conference, workshop or event that you have played a key role in organising
- Any other notable successes or awards.
The competition is open to all current part time and full time PhD students at Birkbeck.
How to apply
If you would like to be considered please complete this entry form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of Friday 6 October.
The form requires a brief statement from the student and the supervisor which can be understood by a non-specialist.
The winner will be awarded the prize at the BGRS Winter party later in the year and will be featured on the BGRS blog.
