Student Awards



The International Federation of Hydrographic Societies owns the acclaimed annual series of Hydro conferences which are hosted by its member societies situated around the world. Hydro conferences attract over 300 delegates from up to 40 countries who come together to learn about the latest techniques and developments within the profession.

Each IFHS member society may nominate one candidate for the annual IFHS Student Award, who if successful must be willing and able to present their proposed paper at the next Hydro conference. From these submissions IFHS will select the Award winner who will also receive:

In addition, independently funded students and graduates may submit abstracts for the dedicated Student Presentation sessions at Hydro conferences. £500 (GBP) and a framed certificate will be awarded to the Best Student Presentation at Hydro as adjudged by the delegates in the audience.

Both awards open to full-time students undertaking relevant undergraduate or post-graduate studies at the time of Hydro or those who have graduated from such courses during the 12 months preceding the deadline for nominations.

All candidates must be nominated by an IFHS-member society. Individual applications from students and/or academic institutions will not be accepted. All nominations must be received by 30th April.
