Awards

In 2022 Lloyd’s Register Foundation celebrate their 10 year anniversary. In honour of this occasion the Foundation will be presenting two very special awards to our grant holder community.  

The first, the 10th Anniversary Impact Award celebrates outstanding impact created in the last 10 years by grant holders supported by either Lloyd’s Register Foundation or its predecessor the Lloyd’s Register Educational Trust (LRET).  

The second, 10th Anniversary Student Impact Award, will be awarded to an individual whose skills or education training has been supported by the Foundation, or its predecessor the Lloyd’s Register Educational Trust (LRET), who can similarly show that they have used their education or training to deliver outstanding impact.  

Each winner will be awarded up to £10,000 of support to enable further impact to be generated from the funded activity. 

The awards will be presented at the Safer World conference (10th – 11th May 2022) and we invite all previous and current grant holders & students to nominate themselves through our online form. The deadline for applications is 22nd April.

We'll also be holding two separate competitions at the Safer World Conference, the Safer World Communicator of the Year and Safer World Poster of the Year. Information on how to apply can be found below.

If you would like to be considered for reimbursement, please forward your name, grant title and institute, the approximate cost of your travel to the conference and the justification for why attending the conference would be of benefit/what difference attending the conference will make to you. The Foundation will then let you know if your application has been successful. Please note that if your application to the travel fund is not successful, the Foundation will not reimburse you for travel.
