The Sylvia Chan Prize for Chinese Studies
Whereas Mrs Sylvia Chan, a highly respected staff member and distinguished researcher in the Centre for Asian Studies for many years, has donated the sum of $3,000 to encourage and support students studying Chinese in the Bachelor of Arts (Asian Studies) degree, the following rules are hereby made.
Mrs Chan's intention is that the prizes, which commenced in 1999, are offered for a period of ten years in the first instance.
- There will be a prize called "The Sylvia Chan Prizes for Chinese Studies."
- The value of the prize shall be $200.
- A prize shall be awarded annually by the Centre for Asian Studies to the student majoring in Chinese who has attained the best overall result for the year in Chinese language courses. The prize winner will have shown by her/his academic performance in these subjects to be the most outstanding student for the year in Chinese language courses.
- If the examiners deem that two or more candidates are of equal merit, the prize shall be divided equally among the candidates.
- If, in any particular year, the examiners consider that no candidate is suitable for the prize, then no award shall be made.
- These rules may be varied from time to time but the title and purpose of the prizes shall not be changed.
