The Chancellor's Prize is an annual
award for the best final year undergraduate student. It was established
in 1992 through the generosity of Lord Kearton, the University's second
Chancellor. The Prize Committee, following an annual selection process,
reports the selection of the prize-winner to Senate and the prize
is awarded at the appropriate summer award ceremony.
Secretary to the Committee: If you would like further information about the Chancellor’s Prize Committee, please contact Clare Henderson (ext 3400, email email@example.com).

Terms of Reference
Approved by Senate 11th November 1992.
The nominated student should have demonstrated academic excellence, together with a contribution to the life, academic reputation and general work of the University. The Committee will bear in mind the availability of other awards (academic prizes, sporting, musical and artistic awards/prizes and for service to the community); additionally, officers of the Students' Union may already have been seen to be honoured by their election to these posts.
Supporting documents and references from sources outside the nominee's Department will be accepted and considered by the Chancellor's Prize Committee in the selection process. Personal Tutors, Directors of Studies or Head of School/Department may be approached for further information before a final decision is made.
Dates of Meetings
The Committee will normally meet in the Spring to consider nominations for the Prize and will confirm a shortlist of students. Finalists may be required to attend an interview to aid the Committee with its decision-making on which student should receive the award.
