The Kathleen Lonsdale RIA Chemistry Prize, formally known as the Young Chemist Prize, was established at the Academy in 2000. Since its inauguration, the Royal Irish Academy works each year with the expert members of the Physical, Chemistry and Mathematical committee to select a winner based on the most outstanding Irish PhD thesis in the general area of the chemical sciences.
The prize, kindly sponsored by Henkel, includes an award of €2,000. The winner will also be nominated by the Physical, Chemical and Mathematical Sciences Committee to compete amongst the top young chemists in the world in the IUPAC-SOLVAY International Award for Young Chemists.
Applications for the Kathleen Lonsdale RIA Chemistry Prize 2021 are now extended. The new closing date for submissions will be on Monday, 18 January 2021. Late applications will not be accepted.
