Sanger Institute 2022 Prize Competition for Undergraduate Students

The Sanger Prize is an outreach competition aimed at undergraduate students who live and study in low or middle income countries.

The prize was set up in 2002 after John Sulston, Sydney Brenner and Robert Horvitz won a Nobel Prize for their work on C.elegans. John Sulston wanted to donate his part of the prize money to a charitable trust to be administered by the Sanger Institute and he appointed a Board of Trustees who decided that the money should be used to fund an annual essay competition to benefit students who would otherwise not have access to the facilities the institute has to offer.

The winner of the competition is invited to spend three months at the Institute working in a lab of their choice, hosted by a member of the Sanger Faculty. All of their essential travel, living and training expenses are paid for by the fund, and support and mentorship is given by the Institute, both from the scientific programme they work with and the team who administer the fund.
