Student Prize 2016-17

For the fifth year running the University of Brighton’s LGBTQ Life Research Hub will award an annual undergraduate student final year dissertation / project prize.

Any final year dissertation or project, submitted to any department or program in the University of Brighton, is eligible if it addresses a topic relevant to lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer and transgender studies.

The work should deal with a theoretical issue or empirical aspect important to the field of sexualities, genders and LGBTQ lives.

Submissions are currently being accepted for the 2017 award.

We accept submissions for dissertations/ projects that were completed and approved no earlier than September 2015. Entries can be submitted by staff or students themselves. The prize consists of an award of £150.

We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the 2016 prize winner, Jasmin Bradley, for her dissertation investigating social determinants of health in GP practices in relation to the LGBT population.
