The BACS Council is responsible for administering a number of awards on behalf of the BACS membership and other individuals and organisations that have generously agreed to fund specific prizes. These awards are usually presented at the BACS annual conference in April.
The Michael Hellyer award is presented for the best paper by a post-doc or early career academic delivered at the conference.
The Vivien Hughes award is presented for the best paper by a PhD student at the conference
The Jodie Robson award is presented for the best paper by a Masters or undergraduate student at the conference
The Tim Rooth award is presented for ‘lifetime achievement’ in the service of BACS
BACS also administers the Prix de la Délégation générale du Québec à Londres, a prize generously offered by the Quebec Government Office in London, UK to support students and academics to carry out research in Quebec studies. This is open to all BACS members, not just those presenting at our annual conference.
