Salters’ Centenary Awards

APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED.

 

To celebrate its Centenary in 2018 the Salters’ Institute has set up a new award scheme for postgraduate chemists and chemical engineers. 

The purpose of the Awards is to recognise and support individuals who are starting out in their career and who have the potential to make an outstanding long-term contribution to the chemical and allied industries.

The Awards will be an important part of the Institute’s programme of activities in support of its mission to promote the practical applications of chemistry at all levels.  Award holders will be asked to participate in the Institute’s educational activities and events with other Salters’ Centenary and Graduate Award holders.

  • the 2nd year of a PhD
  • the 2nd year of employment in industry in the UK, having gone into industry directly after completing a Bachelors/Masters degree
