The Harrison-Meldola Memorial Prizes are annual prizes awarded by Royal Society of Chemistry to British chemists who are 34 years of age or below. The prize is given to scientist who demonstrate the most meritorious and promising original investigations in chemistry and published results of those investigations. There are 3 prizes given every year, each winning £5000 and a medal. Candidates are not permitted to nominate themselves.

They were begun in 2008 when two previous awards, the Meldola Medal and Prize and the Edward Harrison Memorial Prize, were joined together. [1]
