2017 Judges

Every year The Undergraduate Awards gathers notable academics from around the globe and hosts the world’s largest virtual academic judging process. The judging process runs from the end of June to the beginning of September, and is a significant and worthwhile endeavour for academics who are passionate about undergraduate research. Judges collaborate with experts worldwide to decide which papers represent the very best in undergraduate research, and while doing so, join a network of international academics representing over 150 institutions from more than 30 countries.
