An award for IBMS accredited BSc Honours degree graduates
Each year an IBMS eStudent member who achieves academic distinction graduating from an IBMS accredited BSc Hons programme is awarded the President's Prize.
One award is made per university and the winner receives a certificate, IBMS Licentiate membership for a year and a cheque for £100. Presentation usually takes place at graduation with the award given by either the current IBMS President, Regional Council member or Institute nominated region or branch member.
To be eligible for the President's Prize students must fit the following criteria:
- be an eStudent member studying an IBMS accredited degree course by the end of January of their final year of the degree,
- have achieved a First Class Honours degree,
- have been nominated by their university.
Winners will also be invited to attend free STEM Ambassador training and may be asked to submit two articles for the IBMS website.
A photograph of the award being presented and a synopsis of the winner will also be published in The Biomedical Scientist.
