The Magnus Magnusson Award, worth £5000, is available at Glasgow Caledonian University.
These awards will be presented to students in their second year upwards, or to researchers in the early stages of their academic careers. Applications from any discipline and from any part of the University or for almost any kind of proposal are welcome. Judges will be especially pleased to receive applications from areas relating to any of the late Magnus Magnusson’s personal interests, including the media, history, language, literature and the natural environment. Applicants must demonstrate achievement in their chosen area, and have a clear plan to take their work forward. Applications for essential elements of a degree course (e.g. payment of fees, or a vacation placement) are not eligible. Applications are shortlisted by representatives of the Magnusson Panel and up to 15 students or groups are selected to present their project to the Magnusson Panel. Applicants who demonstrate knowledge, understanding and impact of their project will be in good stead to be selected as Magnusson Award winners.
