GRANTS AND AWARDS

With the 60th year anniversary of the society being celebrated in 2016, the creation of the New Scientist Awards is an appropriate and timely recognition of the societies investment in research and multi-discliplinary skills within the scope of hydrocephalus and spina bifida.

THE NORMAN GUTHKELCH AWARD
FOR NEW SCIENTISTS

The Norman Guthkelch Award is an award of £1500 GBP to be received by a student in training or an early career investigator who is conducting research in the area of hydrocephalus and neural tube defects
including spina bifida. At this time, the Guthkelch Award is only available to those applying via SRHSB and not via any other society, despite any joint meetings.

THE CASEY HOLTER ESSAY PRIZE

Applications for the Casey Holter Essay may be submitted to the Honorary Secretary at any time for consideration by the Executive Committee. This award is usually given every three years to the author of an essay on any aspect of hydrocephalus or spina bifida.

There is no restriction on the choice of subject for the essay but it should be in keeping with the aims and scientific interests of the Society. The essay should not be written in the format of a traditional scientific paper but have a more personal style. Ideally it should take the form of an argument and may, in addition, examine the philosophy underlying a particular practice or practices. The essay must contain a substantial amount of unpublished data.

Essays should be submitted to the SRHSB Honorary Secretary who will maintain the anonymity of authors and a high standard of review. The Executive Committee will decide on the bestowal of the Casey Holter Essay  Prize.

Prize deadlines to be announced shortly.
