Once a year, the Science Student Union hands out two prizes to thank some of those who in different ways, are an important part of the students’ education. The process revolving these prizes are regulated through the Policy of Honorary and Pedagogical Prize.

The union board is responsible for selecting a recipient in accordance with the policy. In the selection, the board will take the criteria for the prizes below into account. An even distribution between departments should be considered both between the two prizes (Pedagogical and Honorary) the same year and the previous years. A short motivation text might limit the possibilities for the nominee to receive the award, as it might make it more difficult to compare it to other more lengthy texts.

The nomination period closes on April 10th. Who’s been awarded the prize will first be publicly announced at the Graduation Ceremonies and then be posted at lundsnaturvetarkar.se.
