Call for nominations for the Queen's Birthday Honours 2019

14 June 2018

Do you know someone working within the environmental sciences sector who deserves to be recognised for their outstanding contribution, their achievements in public life, and/or their commitment to serving and helping Britain?

If so, then create an opportunity for them to receive national recognition for all their hard work by nominating them for a UK honour. Honours are a distinctive way of acknowledging someone's achievements, rewarding people who have made a real difference to society.

Anyone can nominate someone for an honour; this can be done by completing the UK honours form and following the guidance documents listed below.

This round is a two stage process. For stage one, we require basic information (the name of the nominee, level and reason and names of two supporters of the nomination). Suggested nominees should be entered on the UKRI-NERC - Queen's Birthday Honours list form (below) and emailed to by 29 June 2018.

If your nomination successfully progresses to stage two, we will contact you to complete the full nominations form, including the citation, and obtain scanned supporting letters (guidance below) with a deadline of 31 July 2018.

Full nominations will then be submitted as part of the science nominations to be considered by an independent committee. There is considerable competition for honours, and the assessment is rigorous, so the citation is the most important piece of evidence for the honours committee to consider.

Note: All nominations are treated in the strictest confidence; the nominee should not be informed that they have been nominated.
