About the Organization

St Andrews is a unique and captivating place, and the University is a key part of its charm. Seven centuries of history link the students with the town, leading to the ancient and yet modern institution apparent today.

The University of St Andrews is comprised of a number of Academic Schools and Departments, which are organised into four Faculties. Each School is led by a Head of School, and supported by a number of academic and professional staff.

About the Prize

The St Andrews Prize for the Environment is a major international initiative led by the University of St Andrews that recognises and supports innovative and inspirational responses to environmental challenges, including the climate crisis. It is overseen by the Master of the United College, Professor Ineke De Moortel FRAS FRSE.

Since 1998, the Prize has awarded more than US$2.5 million in prize money across the world to individuals and organisations whose imaginative solutions are protecting the environment and promoting a more sustainable society.

Now in its 26th year, the Prize aims to champion the people and ideas addressing the greatest challenge of our age.


The St Andrews Prize welcomes applications from individuals and organisations (including community groups) who lead projects that protect the environment or contribute to its sustainable development.

As a core aim of the Prize is to bring about substantial progress in solving environmental problems, we seek applications from projects where winning would lead to a step-change in the development and implementation of the idea.

As a general rule, the University is unlikely to be able to make payments to countries under international sanctions. Therefore, we encourage projects based in such locations to consider carefully if this may impact them before applying.

For a project to be eligible, it must:

  • be an established project with a proven track record of success
  • be related to sustainable development or biodiversity, and be aligned with the UN Goals for Sustainable Development
  • be replicable from one geographic area to another and ideally be scalable in size
  • have a clearly defined need for funding
  • have the ability to inspire others in the field
  • contribute to the global pursuit of sustainability in the short- to long-term
  • meet high ethical standards in respect of intellectual property, and in how it interacts with people and with the environment
  • be inclusive.
