St. Andrews University Prize For The Environment
The Prize is an initiative by the University of St. Andrews in Scotland and the energy exploration and production company ConocoPhillips.

Submissions for the annual prize are assessed by a panel of eminent trustees representing science, industry, and government. The award annually goes to the project the trustees consider displays the best combination of good science, economic realism, and political acceptability. Applications are invited from individuals, multidisciplinary teams, or community groups with the winner receiving $100,000 and the two runners up awarded $25,000 apiece.
