Sedgwick Prize

(Statutes and Ordinances, p. 930)

The Woodwardian Professor of Geology gives notice, on behalf of the Examiners, that the subject for the Sedgwick Prize for the year 2017 will be either ‘A proposal for a programme of geological field-work’, or ‘A proposal for the use of collections in Earth Sciences research’.

Submissions, printed or typewritten, must be sent to the Registrary (addressed to the Scholarships Administrator, The Student Registry, 4 Mill Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1RZ), so as to arrive not later than 1 October 2017. The Prize is open to University officers and Fellows of Colleges, and to other persons employed by the University to carry out research in the Faculty of Earth Sciences and Geography, who have resided sixty days during the twelve months preceding 1 October 2017. It is open to candidates to incorporate in their essays material which they have already published, but they are expected to submit a connected presentation of their case.

The value of the Prize is likely to be £10,000. This Prize is offered every second year.
