Each year the Society for Research into Higher Education (SRHE) invites applications from Newer Researchers to enter a research proposal for a small scale project under an SRHE Prize scheme. The winner receives a number of benefits from the Society in addition to the prize money awarded to fund the selected project. Entry is open to all and not restricted to current SRHE Members. The SRHE Prize for Newer Researchers is jointly sponsored by the SRHE and Routledge Taylor & Francis Group.

Eligible researchers are those with a minimum of a first undergraduate degree and currently registered as a student with, or undertaking research associated with, a university or college department and with an interest in pursuing a career in higher education research.
These awards are not available to support study towards a postgraduate qualification or to support research work intended as the basis for a PhD submission. Research proposals submitted for these awards must demonstrate that they relate to different research questions than those covered by a PhD, or equivalent, if this is yet to be awarded or completed. To qualify as a newer researcher you should be within 6 years of the completion of your PhD or equivalent professional qualification.
