The British Mexican Society offers a prize of £500 for
the best Ph.D. thesis produced at any British University
on a topic related to Mexico.
The prize is open to students of any nationality and in
any academic discipline providing they have finished their
Ph.D. studies in a UK university.
The thesis must be directly related to Mexico and make
a substantial contribution to the topic studied.
A single prize will normally be awarded, but the Society
reserves the right to withhold the prize if, for any reason,
it considers that there are no suitable entries. It also
reserves the right to split the prize if there are two candidates
of comparable merit.
