Now in its sixth year, our essay prize is named after the late Professor Michael Pittilo, Vice Chancellor of Robert Gordon University. Professor Pittilo was a scientist, educationalist and champion of inter-professional education.
An essay question is set annually. Winners typically receive a generous cash prize as well as journal publication and a platform at a College event to present their essay. Enter our 2015 competition here by Friday 26th June.
