BRC Youth Awards

The NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is proud to take part in the 2017 Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) Youth Awards. The Awards aim to inspire young people from the local area to stay in education and develop a career in science.

The BRC supports three awards for 15-18 year olds with an interest in:

  • Chemistry, biology and psychological health
  • Sociology, psychology and health
  • Maths, computer science & health

As well as a placement, winners receive ongoing mentoring from a researcher for a year and a £50 book token.  

Applications for the 2017 awards are now closed, and details of how to apply in 2018 will be published here later this year.
