Ashfords LLP Marine Prize

Leading law firm, Ashfords LLP, is delighted to sponsor the Ashfords' Marine Prize at the University of Plymouth. 

The prize is open to University of Plymouth students whose final year research project is within the marine sector and is of relevance to UN Sustainable Development Goal 14 (Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources). Projects also need to demonstrate a tangible impact or benefit to Plymouth and or other coastal regions.

“I’m delighted that we are able to partner with Ashfords to launch the Ashfords Marine Prize at the University of Plymouth. This is an area where the University and indeed, Plymouth in general are amongst the best in the world. We are rightly proud of the work our students do in this field and it is encouraging to have a local firm supporting and encouraging them in this way.” Professor Kevin Jones

The prize

Ashfords LLP has generously committed £18,000 to the University, over three consecutive years, 2018 - 2020. The £6,000 donation will be divided between four students - a winner, runner up, and two honourable mentions. 

Staff from Ashfords will be invited to join a Prize Panel alongside nominated business and faculty contacts, meeting students and learning about their work. From this a shortlist of four will be drawn. The winner of the Ashfords Marine Prize will be announced at the graduation ceremony.

The prize is open to current undergraduate students whose final year research project relates to the marine sector.

Applications should be completed and returned to marineinstitute@plymouth.ac.uk by the deadline below.
