The Prince of Wales Scuba Award is awarded annually to the member or group of members of BSAC for outstanding achievement in research in the field of scuba diving.
This prize is to supersede the Duke of Cambridge prize, which itself superseded the Duke of Edinburgh Prize.
The Jubilee Trust would like to receive applications by the end of APRIL each year.
