Chancellor

As part of the Chancellor's Commission, an independent inquiry investigating the role of the University in the local community, we are launching three competitions for students of the University of Warwick.

The essay competition has a top prize of £1,000, with two runner up prizes of £250. The video competition has a prize of £1,000, and the photo competition has five prizes of £100.
