The Royal Society of Victoria

Research Prizes and Scholarship Opportunities

The Royal Society of Victoria (RSV) convenes Victoria’s science community. It is the State’s oldest learned society and a part of Australia’s intellectual life since 1854. Located in a heritage-listed building at 8 La Trobe Street, Melbourne, the Society provides a dynamic program of lectures, symposia and forums about science.

Through the RSV Science Foundation, the Society supports community outreach and scientific research through an awards program, recognising lifetime achievements and encouraging early career progression of Victorian scientists through a suite of special honours and prizes.

The Society is currently inviting applications for the following awards and prizes:

Young Scientist Research Prizes

The RSV Medal for Excellence in Scientific Research

The Phillip Law Postdoctoral Award for Physical Science
