The Australian War Memorial is proud to announce the Bryan Gandevia Prize to foster and promote research into Australian military history, military-medical history and military-social history.

A generous bequest by the family and friends of the late Professor Bryan Gandevia has enabled the establishment of a prize to commemorate Professor Gandevia's contribution to the development of Australian military and medical history and his contribution to the research and publication activities of the Australian War Memorial.

The Bryan Gandevia Prize of $5,000 will be awarded biennially to an outstanding honours, masters or doctoral thesis on a significant subject in Australian military history, military-medical history or military-social history. The prize is intended to assist scholars in the early stages of their research careers and may be used to assist with publication of their work or to further their research interests.

The inaugural prize will be awarded in April 2012 for theses submitted, examined and passed in the two preceding years, 2010 and 2011. Applications will close on 31 January 2012 and the award will be announced by the Director of the Australian War Memorial on or around Anzac Day, 25 April 2012.
