Undergraduate Microbiology Prizes
The prizes aim to encourage excellence in the study of microbiology by undergraduate students and to promote scholarship in, and awareness of, microbiology in universities. A prize will be awarded annually to the undergraduate student in each qualifying institution who performs best in microbiology in their second year of full time study (or part time equivalent) for a Bachelor's degree. Each winning student will be awarded £150, a certificate and one year's free undergraduate student membership of the SGM.
One prize will be available to each university in the UK and
Republic of Ireland offering an appropriate microbiology course.
The university will be asked to choose the assessed microbiological
work for which the prize is awarded. Examples of appropriate work
include: best written dissertation on a microbiological topic;
best microbiology presentation; best examined microbiology module.
The submission should be supported by formal marks, not an informal
assessment. Winning students should have attained at least 2(I)
overall in their degree examinations at the stage at which the
award is made.
Eligible students may be registered for any degree with a significant
microbiology content (e.g. Biotechnology, Applied Biology etc.),
not just a BSc Microbiology. The university must decide which
student group studying which microbiological activity is eligible
for consideration. Usually this should remain the same from year
to year, although a permanent change to the selection may be made
if new courses develop.
52 Universities successfully nominated a student for the SGM Undergraduate Microbiology Prize in 2010.
