The IMarEST Endeavour Award, established in 2015, will consist of one first prize of $2,000 to one final-year student project team participating in the Endeavour Exhibition.

The winning project teams will demonstrate the applications of their projects in hydrodynamics, marine engineering, oceanography or fluid mechanics. The award is open to project teams from any department.

Students must demonstrate how the outcomes of their project will benefit these disciplines if the project does not directly involve those disciplines.
