United Kingdom Awards

Eligible Institutions

All universities and independent research institutions in the United Kingdom with faculty-rank researchers in subjects that the Blavatnik Awards recognize are eligible to submit up to three nominations: one in each subject category. See below for the full list of eligible institutions.

Research institutes and university hospitals that operate under the umbrella of a parent university should ensure their young faculty members are incorporated into the selection process of the nominees of that university. If your institution does not appear on our list and would like to submit nominations, please send a brief statement of interest to BlavatnikAwardsUK@nyas.org.
