British Science Association CREST Awards

You may choose to take a British Science Association CREST award alongside your Nuffield Research Placement. For further information about this nationally recognized scheme see the British Science Association website or contact your local Nuffield Coordinator. 

If you complete a CREST award you will be eligible to self-nominate your project for a place at the The UK Young Scientists' and Engineers' Fair - The Big Bang.

Further details about the Fair and details about how to self-nominate your project are available on the British Science Association webpages.

If you already have a CREST Award, join the CREST Alumni Network and connect with your CREST roots, hear inspirational stories from students attending National and International events – and from Alumni who have since gone on to have outstanding careers. You'll also be kept in the loop about other competitions, funding sources and opportunities available through the British Science Association and their other partners that may be of interest. Even better, your stories could help inspire a new generation of CREST students!

It’s FREE to join the CREST Alumni Network (and quick and simple). Visit: to sign-up.
