What are the Tow Coast Association Health & Medical Research Early Career Awards?PrinceHenryHospital

The Tow Awards, now in their fifth decade, were started by Dr Wally Tow in 1972 to support outstanding junior investigators and clinicians at Prince Henry Hospital (now the Randwick Health & Innovation Precinct). Almost $19,000 in prizes are awarded each year, with a further up $10,000 pool for travel awards supporting division winners to present at international and national conferences.

Who can Apply?

The Tow Research Awards are open to junior investigators undertaking clinical and scientific research at hospitals and research institutes at the Randwick Health & Innovation Precinct. This extends to undergraduate and higher degree research students (and recent graduates), physicians, nurses, midwives, and other allied health professionals. There are five different divisions of awards to compete in. To find out more, click here….

How do you Apply?

Submissions are accepted through this website (see the top of this page for the key dates for this year).   Research submissions must be accompanied by a supporting statement from the applicant’s research supervisor, and case presentations must have been nominated by a specific clinical service. For more information, click here….

How are submissions judged?

Judging processes depend on the type of submission. All submissions are reviewed by a panel of judges. Submissions in each division are ranked, and the four applicants with the highest scoring entries in each division are invited to present their work during the Tow Awards Research Day. Applicants whose submissions are of good scientific quality but not chosen for oral presentation are invited to join present their research as a poster.  For more details including criteria for judging, click here….

What happens on the Tow Awards Day, and who can attend?

All are welcome to attend part or all of the Tow Awards Day to hear from some of the top early career researchers and junior clinicians on the Randwick Health & Innovation Precinct. The day finishes with the Awards Ceremony, when the Tow Awards Winners are announced.
