The Terry Prize is an award funded by a bequest made by the late Dr Anne Terry in memory of her late husband, Professor Roland Terry. The Award is made annually to two undergraduate students undertaking the BSc Environmental Science and Sustainability degree. Recipients will be in the first, second or third year of their studies, with at least one further year of study on campus. The winners are selected by a panel of academic staff at the School of Interdisciplinary Studies, led by Bethan Wood.
The 2021 winners of the prize are Alice Parker and Melanie Decker.
