Regulations and Statutes UTR6.018 Grimwade Prize (1906 - )


The Honourable Frederick Sheppard Grimwade presented £1000 to the University for the purpose of establishing the 'Grimwade Prize'. The prize is awarded to an undergraduate or graduate candidate who submits 'an original thesis embodying the results of an investigation pursued by the candidate in Victoria within five years of the competition in connection with some branch of industrial chemistry' as approved by the Faculty of Science. The examiners of the thesis must consider 'the scientific ability, originality and chemical knowledge displayed by the candidates' and 'the importance of their work in respect to its bearing on any branch of industrial chemistry such as metallurgy, pharmacy, agriculture or the manufacture of chemical products.' The prize was made a University regulation in 1906.
