Q. What are the prizes?
A. The prizes will consist of one primary award of £1,000 ($1,300 US / €1,100) and two secondary awards of £250 ($325 US / €275). The funds given should be used to support with the costs of conducting a research study or costs associated with presenting research at a conference or event.
