Applications Now Open for Richard Dolby/Rolls-Royce Award

Fri, 16 February, 2024

Applications are now being accepted for the biennial Richard Dolby/Rolls Royce Award.

Presented by The Welding Institute’s Young Members’ Committee, the award is open to Institute Members under 35 who wish to demonstrate their success and enthusiasm for welding, joining and / or materials engineering at an early stage of their career.

In return for this demonstration of professional commitment and skills, there is a chance to win a £1,000 cash prize, while the top three runners-up will each be awarded £100 Amazon gift vouchers.

Entrants need to submit an initial application and abstract, which, if chosen, is then followed by a short technical report (maximum four pages of A4) on a subject related to welding, joining and/or materials engineering. From here, if you are short-listed as a finalist, you will be asked to deliver a 20-minute presentation on your chosen subject. This presentation event will take place in-person at TWI Cambridge on 2 July 2024.

2024 will mark the eighth occasion The Richard Dolby – Rolls-Royce prize has been awarded, with the award generously sponsored by Rolls-Royce plc.

The deadline for applications for this award is at 16:00 PM on 15 March, 2024.
