Gravitational Physics Group thesis prize
This prize is awarded for excellence in physics research and communication.
The prize is £500.
The winner is invited to submit a paper to Classical and Quantum Gravity (CQG) based on their thesis. If accepted, it is made a select article in CQG.
They will also have the opportunity to present their work at one of the UK BritGrav meetings.
