Nominations are due by Monday 19 August 2013
Nominations are invited for recipients of Honorary Degrees and Honorary Fellowships. These will be considered by the Honorary Degrees Committee at meetings in September and October 2013 and recommendations will be made to Senate and Council.
Nominations for both honorary degrees and honorary fellowships should be made by completing the form [in either a PDF version (51kb), or a Word version (35kb)]. Please give as much information as possible on the form, for the benefit of the Committee.
In awarding an Honorary Degree, the University seeks to recognise distinction and proven achievement. In some cases it also seeks to identify an individual’s potential. There is generally a connection either with the University or the city of Bristol. In considering nominations, the Committee will seek to honour individuals who represent a range of backgrounds and to recommend awards to candidates at a local, national and international level.
An Honorary Fellowship is the highest honour a university can bestow. The title is awarded rarely by the University of Bristol and recognises outstanding distinction in an academic field and/or a particular and consistent contribution over a period of time to the life of the University.
The University is also inviting nominations for National Honours (Queen’s Birthday Honours and New Year Honours). These will be given preliminary consideration by the Honorary Degrees Committee and, if they are supported, will be put forward for consideration at a national level. Nominations for National Honours should be submitted to the Committee in writing, to include the following:
