Annual Prizes and Awards
Hannah Steinberg BAP Conference Bursary
Launched in 2010 following a generous donation from Professor Hannah Steinberg, a founder member of the BAP, and The Wolfson Foundation. One bursary to be awarded each year to support attendance at the BAP Summer Meeting by a post-graduate student who is a Training Member of BAP.
The Honorary General Secretary will consider likely conflicts of interest and then delegate to a number of BAP Council Members who will review nominations for the various awards. Where a BAP Council Member is requested to review a prize in which a conflict of interest arises for them (e.g. a former PhD student has been nominated) they will excuse themselves from the process and another Council Member will be asked to replace them.
Whilst Council members are not prohibited from applying for prizes, the Honorary General Secretary additionally seeks the endorsement of one of the Presidents (current, immediate past or elect), according to their expertise, and who does not have a direct conflict of interest, before any such prize is awarded to a Council Member.
We are pleased to announce that the winner of this year's Hannah Steinberg BAP Conference Bursary is:
Cathy Davies (King's College London)
"The BAP Summer Meeting was an exceptional event this year, striking the perfect balance between cutting-edge science and social activities – an approach that has facilitated new collaborations as well as many new friendships. A huge and sincere thanks to the BAP for the Hannah Steinberg Bursary, for supporting junior scientists so wholeheartedly, and for organising such a fantastic and engaging conference!"
