Colleagues, please do direct any data-savvy students to this award, Debbie
Building on from the success of the 2016 Dissertation Prize, the UK Data Service will be running the Dissertation Prize for the academic year 2016/17.
So, if you are you an undergraduate student using secondary analysis for your dissertation and would you like to share your results with other researchers, users of data and practitioners, then you should enter this years’ competition!
We will be awarding three dissertation prizes for projects that demonstrate an interesting re-use of quantitative or qualitative data available through the UK Data Service (including mixed methods approaches). The competition is open to any undergraduate students enrolled at a British or Irish university, in any discipline, for research dissertations on social and economic issues.
The three winning candidates will receive prizes of £500 (1st place), £250 (2nd place) and £150 (3rd place). The abstract of the winning dissertations, along with their key findings, will also be publicised to our networks within the social sciences through our quarterly Newsletter.
