We feel that recognition and reward in education and teaching is crucial. In reflection of this, The Society supports two prizes in Higher Education: one to recognise the best students and the other to recognise the best teacher.
The Undergraduate Prize for Physiology
Each year, we award undergraduate prizes that recognise the excellence of final year undergraduate students studying for a degree in physiology or related subject. Nominations can be made by Society Representatives either for excellence specifically in a final year project, or for overall excellence in a degree.
The prize includes £100, one year's free membership to The Society and a certificate of achievement.
Nominations are made by Society Reps, so please liaise with your local representative if you have any suggestions.
Society Reps can find more information on how to make a nomination at the Society reps pages.

The Otto Hutter Physiology Teaching Prize
The Otto Hutter prize recognises an individual's contribution to teaching undergraduate physiology. A call for nominations is made each year and a winner is selected by the Education and Outreach Committee. The prize, awarded at The Society's annual Main Meeting, includes £500 for the winner and £500 for the host institution (the latter to support education and teaching in physiology).
Nominations (including self-nominations) can be made by Members and non-Members of The Society and should include the following:
- Summary of proposal (400 words max)
- Student feedback
- Letter from Head of Department
- Evidence of innovation, where appropriate
Nominations for the 2013 Otto Hutter prize are now open. Nominations and enquiries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for nominations is 8 October 2013.
