D H Richards Memorial Bursaries

Established TBC

Macro Group set up the bursaries as a memorial to D H Richards, who was one of the founding officers of Macro Group and worked hard to establish it as a major group in the UK. Under this scheme, Macro Group sets aside funds each year to support its student and PDRA members that wish to attend a major conference in the area of polymer science, but are short of funds to make this happen.

Award Information

Award History

The Beilby Medal and Prize was established in 1930 in honour of Sir George Beilby. Sir Beilby's long and remarkable career as scientist and industrialist was marked by an enduring interest in the twin concerns of fuel economy and smoke abatement. His dedication and energetic research had great significance for the fuel and metal industries, and produced far-reaching advantages for society. He was SCI World President in 1898 and contributed greatly to SCI's growth in Scotland. A Beilby Memorial Fund to reward exceptional research was raised in his honour by subscription.
