The 2019 Prizes

Every year at the GSA’s graduation ceremony we recognise outstanding approaches to ethical, social and environmental issues within their practice.

Any graduating student can enter, and we also offer prizes for other year groups and Masters, Singapore and other students graduating at different times.

Your work has to stand out, be innovative, address key issues and add to the body of knowledge in your subject. It should run like a golden thread through your thinking and approach, and create a resource for fellow & future students. You can read some more about our judging criteria here.

Students can work towards any of the prizes by attending drop-in sessions (dates are available on our events page and book here), or contacting us direct for a 1-2-1 meeting.

Entry is made by the student submitting a two page summary of their work to John the GSA’s Sustainability Coordinator by the date below. The day before Degree Show opens the judging panel will walk round the applicants’ work and applicants can be present to discuss their thinking.

If you’re an academic and would like a student to be recognised for their work, please encourage them to apply. You can also ask us to instigate a prize category for other year groups.

Not in your final year? Any student can apply for funding from us.
