FROM: Ignazio Maria Viola
SUBJECT: UKFN Thesis Prize - 2023 and beyond 

We would like to remind you that since June 2022 Internal and External
Examiners can nominate a PhD candidate for the UKFN Prize for the best
UK Fluids thesis at any time of the year. 

The thesis must be for a doctoral degree in fluids-related research
awarded by a UK institution. Examiners can submit the nomination to
competition at fluids.ac.uk as soon as the PhD examination has taken place:
a citation of 300-500 words is required from each Examiner together with
brief details of the candidate and their thesis. Full details are given
here [1]. The winner of the Award receives a prize of £500, and
(programme permitting) will be invited to present their work at the UK
Fluids Conference. 

Nominations for theses examined in 2022 will be entered in the 2023
competition, and must be submitted at any time before 1st March 2023.
The winner will be announced by 31st May 2023.
