Balliol College


The Dawkins Prize was endowed by a generous donation from the family of Professor Richard Dawkins FRS, Charles Simonyi Professor of the Public Understanding of Science in the University of Oxford. The Prize is for outstanding research into the ecology and behaviour of animals whose welfare and survival may be endangered by human activities.

The first Prize-winner (2001) was Dr Iain Douglas-Hamilton. The College now seeks nominations for the second Dawkins Prize.

The prize-winner will receive £2,000 and will be expected to give one public lecture in Oxford. The College also hopes that a Dawkins Prize Scholar will be chosen by the prize-winner, to enable a student to gain research experience by working with him or her. £2,000 will be available to the prize-winner for the Scholarship and research expenses. In addition, the travel expenses of the prize-winner and Scholar will be met, up to a total of £2,000.

Nominations should contain names, addresses, and affiliations of nominator and nominee, and a brief list of the key achievements and publications of the nominee. Nominations should be sent to the Vice-Master, Convenor of the Dawkins Prize Committee, Balliol College, Oxford, OX1 3BJ, by 1 April.
