The Andrew Scott Prize for Latin
In 1908 £115 was raised and paid to the University by a private subscription in memory of the late Andrew Scott, B.A. who was a prominent South Australian educator and Principal of the Training School (later the Teachers College) and who fostered the teaching of Latin throughout his career.
This is an endowed prize with the capital held in the University’s Endowment Fund and the income distribution each year used to fund the prize.
The following rules now apply:
- The prize shall be called ‘The Andrew Scott Prize for Latin’.
- The value of the prize shall be $60 per year, or such other amount as the University shall from time to time determine provided that the value of the prize does not exceed the annual distribution of interest available from the Endowment Fund.
- The prize shall be awarded to the student who attains the highest mark in Latin subjects at undergraduate or Honours level.
- If, in any particular year, the examiners consider than no candidate is worthy of the prize, then no award shall be made.
- If, in any particular year, the examiners consider that two or more candidates are of equal merit, the prize shall be divided equally between the candidates.
- The University may vary the rules from time to time in a manner consistent with the University’s legal obligations and policies.
