The 2013 Charles Darwin Award and Marsh Prize
This is awarded annually for outstanding work in zoology. The winner of the ZSL Charles Darwin Award and Marsh Prize receives a certificate and a monetary prize of £800, which is generously donated by the Marsh Christian Trust
The Award is open to undergraduate students attending a university in Great Britain or Northern Ireland. The Charles Darwin Award and Marsh Prize will be given for an outstanding zoological project carried out and written by an undergraduate during the period September 2012 to August 2013. To avoid difficulties arising from too rigid a schedule, projects will be accepted a month before or a month after these dates.
Heads of Department are requested to recommend one undergraduate research student whose project is considered to be outstanding.
A letter or recommendation, along with the project and a detailed report on the candidate’s work, should be sent to:
The Secretary of the Awards Committee,
Zoological Society of London,
The following additional information should also be submitted:
- The degree the candidate is studying
- The length of time over which the project was undertaken.
- The nature and extent of assistance given to the undergraduate.
Recommendations must be received no later than 30 November 2013.
The Council of ZSL request that the candidate should not be told of the recommendation.
The Charles Darwin Award and Marsh Prize will be presented to the winning student in June 2014.
