The Young Scientist Research Prizes

  • -

To foster and recognise excellence in Victoria's early career scientists, the Royal Society of Victoria established four prestigious competitive prizes open to Victorian students in their final year of doctoral candidature, in all areas of the Biomedical & Health Sciences, Biological Sciences (Non-human), Earth Sciences and Physical Sciences.

Following assessment of applications across the four categories, we will select eight PhD finalists to present their work to us during National Science Week, on the evening of Wednesday, 19 August. Join us to hear about the latest science from our emerging scientists, and to support and celebrate the achievements of Victoria’s upcoming high achievers.

In light of COVID-19 restrictions, this year’s competition will be conducted online, with presentations professionally filmed and finalists answering questions from RSV members and guests in a Zoom conference (invitations to register are sent via email and the Society’s membership page). The presentations and Zoom conference will be live streamed via the Society’s Facebook site – please tune in at the appointed time to follow the proceedings and add your questions and comments.
