BRISMES recognises and supports outstanding research and contributions to the field of Middle East Studies through a number of awards.

The BRISMES Award for Services to Middle Eastern Studies is an honorary award presented annually in recognition of outstanding services to Middle Eastern Studies.

As part of our ongoing commitment to supporting students and Early Career Researchers, we established the BRISMES Conference Student Paper Prize, which supports BRISMES student members in the development of peer-reviewed work, and the BRISMES Early Career Development Scholarship, an annual award to support activities that strengthen the academic profile and CV of an early career scholar.

BRISMES also administers the Leigh Douglas Memorial Prize which is awarded annually to the writer of the best PhD dissertation on a Middle Eastern topic in the Social Sciences and Humanities awarded by a British university in the previous calendar year.
