Each year the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science may offer one prize known as the First Year Science Communication Prize.
The objective of the prize is to recognise excellence in science communication studies by a student enrolled in first year science communication courses.
The value of the prize awarded is $200.
The prize will be on offer in perpetuity, provided there is funding for it.
Funding for this prize has been provided by donors to the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science Endowment, which was established in 2013.
How to apply
The award is available each year to an ANU student who:
- is a domestic or international student.
- is enrolled in a program leading to the award of a degree of Bachelor.
- that year completed any two first year level courses offered in the area of Science Communication; or one such course if in that year only one was offered.
Selection is made on the basis of the highest aggregate mark achieved for any two first year level courses offered in the area of Science Communication; or the highest mark in one first year level course offered in the area of Science Communication if in that year only one such course was offered.
