Annual Postgraduate Awards Day – NSW AIP Branch

November 13, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 10:00 pm


The NSW AIP Branch will hold its Annual Postgraduate Awards Day on Tuesday 13 November 2018.

Each New South Wales University is invited to nominate one student to compete for the $500 prize and Postgraduate medal on that day.

The Royal Society of NSW will also award the Jak Kelly Scholarship prize of $500 as a separate award category for this event. Students nominated for the awards will also be invited as guests for the NSW AIP Branch annual dinner that follows the presentations.

These awards have been created to encourage excellence in postgraduate work, and all nominees who participate in the Postgraduate Awards Day will receive a special certificate recognising the nominee’s high standing.

Students are asked to make a 20-minute presentation on their postgraduate research in Physics, and the presentation will be judged on the criteria:

  • content and scientific quality
  • clarity
  • presentation skills.

Please refer to the judges’ criteria and nomination procedures in the attached AIP Postgraduate Awards Program.

Entrance is FREE to the Awards and Talk by Tibor G Molnar.
