Salters’ Graduate Awards

Up to ten awards of £1,000 each are made to final-year undergraduates studying at UK universities, trying to keep an even balance between chemists and chemical engineers.

Candidates are expected to obtain a First Class Honours Degree in the year of nomination.


Selection Procedure

Awards are based on an assessment of the potential of candidates ultimately to occupy leading positions in public life, either by employment in the Chemical or related industries, or more generally in employment that supports the industrial life of the UK.  Candidates are expected to show some knowledge of the Chemical industry’s current situation and the need for changing technology in the future.  In reflecting these aims, the selectors look particularly for:

  • Intellectual ability
  • Capacity to initiate
  • Ability to communicate his/her interest and enthusiasm to a wider audience
  • Ability to enlist the co-operation of others, whether colleagues or subordinates
  • A concern for the future of the UK industrial base
  • A willingness and ability to take part in the Institute’s activities

Award notices are sent out at the beginning of the year to the Heads of University Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Departments who are invited to nominate candidates. Many Universities then undergo their own selection procedure before nominating a candidate.
