The Hydrographic Society UK, which also maintains an overseas membership drawn from nearly 45 countries, has launched an annual student and graduate paper Award scheme dedicated to the memory of Alan Ingham, founder member of the original organisation in 1972 who was a prominent educationalist and noted author. Open to bona fide students and recent graduates on relevant BSc, MSc and PhD courses in the UK and Ireland, the scheme is for the best adjudged dissertation paper on any hydrographic or related topic concerned with research, innovation or application ventures. A prize of £500 and a framed certificate is available to the winning candidate, with a 1500-2000 word version of the dissertation being published in The Societyâs popular quarterly journal, Soundings.
