The Chancellor's Prize

The Chancellor's Prize was established in 1992 through the generosity of Lord Kearton, the University's second chancellor. It is awarded annually to the best final year undergraduate student on the basis of the student demonstrating academic excellence together with a contribution to the life, academic reputation and general work of the University.

The winner of the 2016 prize is:

Ludi Wanger, 2016 Ede and Ravenscroft Prize Winner

Ludi Wang

Final Year BSc

Department of Economics

The Committee was very impressed with the exceptional academic results that Ludi has achieved throughout her degree programme. Ludi secured competitive internships with the Bank of England and HM Treasury, which gained her commendations, and achieved success at the One Young World Summit 2015. Her contribution to the general life of the University through excelling as a Departmental representative - gaining twice an outstanding contribution award - provided evidence of her enthusiastic engagement with the student experience. Ludi's wider contribution to the general work of the University and Community through completing the Bath Award and achieving silver level in the Volunteer Recognition Scheme as well as being an illustrator of children's books show the breadth of her talent. Her Director of Studies noted that she is a highly motivated student who has excellent academic and communication skills and is a great ambassador for the University. Dr Winnett said "She really has made the most of her opportunities - representing the university and contributing to its life and reputation".
