Through the generosity of John Twycross, a graduate, the Department of Chemistry is able to award annually one prize of £750 to a Year 3 student on the MChem course to provide additional support for him/her to spend the fourth year of the course in York. Students already sponsored by a company, or with a place on the Industrial Placements scheme, or at a University in Europe are not eligible.
A shortlist will be drawn up by a prizes and awards panel, taking into account the advice of college directors of studies and the Year 4 Leader and the information provided by applicants in the form of short personal statements.
Factors which John Twycross will take into account include:
