Adam Weiler Doctoral Impact Award: Nominations now open

Recognising and celebrating outstanding academic impact

The Doctoral School are pleased to announce that nominations for the Adam Weiler Doctoral Impact Award are now open until Friday 15th May 2020.

The award is available to exceptional researchers currently registered for a doctoral degree at Sussex who have demonstrated the potential to achieve outstanding academic impact in their field.

One award of £1,000 (to go towards the winner’s research) is available each year, the result of a generous donation in memory of Adam Weiler, who studied International Relations at Sussex. Doctoral researchers can be nominated by their supervisor or the Director of Doctoral Studies in their School.

Find out more about the award, including guidance notes and the selection process, on the Adam Weiler Doctoral Impact Award page.

You can read an interview with Swastee Ranjan, last year’s winner, on the Doctoral Connections blog. The University’s Research Impact Officer, Christina Miariti, also gave her insights into what research impact is on the Hive Scholars’ blog last year.
