RHSC Awards Workshop 2021

Welcome to RSEC’s annual summer awards workshop!

This year is a little bit different, as we are making use of both a live session (early August) and this page, which hosts lecture content for you to make use of as you prepare your application. Given the September deadlines for key awards, we hope this format will help you to get an early start on application writing and help you to get the most out of the live session. We look forward to seeing you at the peer-review/Q&A session!

Learning Objectives

1. Become aware of what’s out there for awards.
