The Charles Fenner Prize for Geography

This prize was founded by private subscription in memory of the late Charles Fenner, D.Sc., a distinguished educator who was Director of Education 1939 to 1946. During this time he assisted in the establishment of the Department of Geography and the study of geography as a full discipline in the Bachelor of Arts. In 2004, Emeritus Professor Frank Fenner, son of the late Charles Fenner, made a further donation of $5000, which increased the value of the prize.

  1. The prize shall be called "The Charles Fenner Prize for Geography".
  2. The annual value of the prize shall be $750, unless otherwise determined by the Faculty.
  3. The prize shall be awarded to the student who attains the highest mark in Advanced Level Geography courses, provided that the candidate is, in the opinion of the examiners, of sufficient merit.
  4. If the examiners deem that two or more candidates are of equal merit, the prize shall be divided equally among those candidates.
  5. These rules may be varied from time to time by the Faculty, but the title and the purpose shall not be changed.
