JANE WILLIS KIRKALDY JUNIOR AND SENIOR PRIZES 2004

The Committee for the History of Science, Medicine, and Technology gives notice that two prizes of £300 each will be offered for competition in Michaelmas Term 2004, the Junior Prize and the Senior Prize. At its discretion, the Committee may award a proxime accessit prize in one or both categories.

The Junior Prize is open to all undergraduate members of the University and to those who, at the deadline for the submission of the essays, are within one term of having completed the examination for an undergraduate degree of the University, provided that the Junior Prize shall not be awarded a second time to the same person, nor shall a person who has been awarded the Junior Prize receive on any subsequent occasion a proxime accessit award to the Junior Prize. A person who has received a proxime accessit award to the Junior Prize may, however, be eligible to be awarded the Junior Prize for a different piece of work on a subsequent occasion.

The Senior prize is open to all members of the University registered as students for the degrees of M.Sc., M.Litt., M.St., M.Phil., or D.Phil. in the University who are not eligible to enter for the Junior Prize. The Senior Prize may not be awarded to the same person twice, nor may a piece of work submitted at any time for the Junior Prize be submitted at the same time or subsequently for the Senior Prize, nor shall a person who has been awarded the Senior Prize receive on any subsequent occasion a proxime accessit award to the Senior Prize. A person who has received a proxime accessit award to the Senior Prize may, however, be eligible to be awarded the Senior Prize for a different piece of work on a subsequent occasion.

Candidates are invited to submit an essay of the order of 10,000 to 15,000 words, on a topic concerning the history of science or technology, proposed by the candidate, and approved by the Committee. The history of science will be taken in this instance to include the history of medicine.

Candidates are advised to state the principal sources whence their information has been obtained.
