The Brian Coghlan Prize
In 1991 sundry colleagues and friends of Brian Coghlan donated funds to the University to establish a prize to commemorate his services to the University of Adelaide, his scholarly achievements and his contribution to the cause of German Language and Culture and of the Humanities generally in the South Australian community.
The following rules are hereby made:
- The prize shall be known as "The Brian Coghlan Prize".
- The value of the prize shall be $500 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 annually to the student who, in the opinion of the Head of the Examining Committee of the Department of German Studies, is of the highest academic merit in Level III German Studies and who accepts an offer into Honours in German Studies or Honours in German Studies combined with another discipline.
- If in any year two or more students should be judged to be of sufficient and equal merit, then the sum available shall be divided equally among them.
- The University may vary the rules from time to time in a manner consistent with the University’s legal obligations and policies.
