The Professor Stephen Hawking Fellowship is awarded to an individual who has made a significant impact on science, technology and its communication, with an emphasis on impacts affecting the younger generations. It is particularly notable in that it is awarded by the students of Cambridge, rather than the University itself.
The fellowship is presented at an event in our chamber during Michaelmas term, during which the fellow gives an address and to which we also welcome the scientific advisory panel and members of the Hawking family.
Stephen Hawking was an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author who, at the time of his death, was director of research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology at the University of Cambridge.
Professor Brian Cox is an English physicist and former musician who is a professor of particle physics in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Manchester and The Royal Society Professor for Public Engagement in Science.
