Awards made by the BSR


The Society awards a Gold Medal every few years in recognition of outstanding contributions to rheology and has also established an Annual Award. This has been made to younger scientists in recognition of their work as well as to rheologists who have made a significant contribution to rheology and/or to the life of the Society; further details are available here.

In 2003 the Society instituted a new annual award for the most distinguished PhD thesis in rheology. The aim of the Vernon Harrison Doctoral Award is to recognise excellence, creativity and novelty in research; it will be awarded to the postgraduate member who, in the opinion of the adjudicating committee, has made the most original and significant contribution to any branch of rheological research (experimental, computational or theoretical) leading to the award of a PhD degree in a given academic year. This prize is partly supported by the Vernon Harrison Bequest, and will be £500 and an illuminated certificate. The deadline for entries is in September each year.

The Society also makes travel grants in support of the expenses incurred by students in their attendance at conferences and courses. Application for grants should be made to the Secretary. The BSR now awards a prize for the best poster presented at a BSR meeting, sponsored by TA Instruments.

To encourage younger rheologists, the Society has in the past made an award for the best paper(s) presented at a Young Rheologists' Day, it has awarded the Scott Blair Memorial Scholarship and administered the Scott Blair Biorheology Scholarship, funded by Elsevier Science.
