Emanuel Miller Prize

By a bequest under the Will of Dr Emanuel Miller, St John's College received a sum of money for the establishment of a prize in the Philosophy of Science.

The prize of £300 will be awarded to the writer of the best essay, not exceeding 10,000 words, on a topic chosen by the competitor within the realm of the Philosophy of Science with special reference to the behavioural sciences (psychology and social science).  

All members of the University are eligible to apply.

Please note the College Council reserves the right not to make an award in any year when it judges that there is no candidate of sufficient merit.

* The winner of the 2021 Emanuel Miller Prize was Elspeth Davies, King's College.
