Grants & Awards

Undergraduate Achievement Award

To encourage excellence in the study of endocrinology by recognising outstanding work from undergraduate students.

Students are nominated by their departments for a specific endocrine-related piece of work, such as a project/essay, or even a top-scoring exam piece. Up to twelve grants are awarded to eligible departments each year on a first come first served basis.



The next round of awards will open on 1 June 2018


£300 per year to the department for three years


  • Undergraduate students are to be nominated by their department. One grant is available to a department in any three-year period. 
  • Applicants must be a fully paid member of the Society for Endocrinology with a minimum of one year’s membership. It is anticipated that the applicant will normally be an academic or academic-related staff member. If not, a letter of support is required from the principal investigator or clinical team leader.
