Young Scientist Research Prizes Competition: Presentations, Judging and Prize Ceremony
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, we will select eight PhD finalists to present their work to us during National Science Week. Join us to hear about the latest science from our emerging scientists, and to support and celebrate the achievements of Victoria’s upcoming high achievers.
Registration is available below to join us for the competition and awards ceremony at the Royal Society of Victoria’s historic Hall in the Melbourne CBD. Alternatively, you can watch along via our YouTube channel at the appointed time without needing to register.
We are a registered charity and donations to the Royal Society of Victoria in support of our programs are tax deductible in Australia. We welcome your support! Donate
