The prize is open to all members of the University who, on the day fixed for the submission of essays, shall not have exceeded thirty terms from their matriculation, provided that candidates holding a degree of another university at the time of their matriculation shall not have exceeded twenty-one terms from their matriculation. Previous Ellerton prize-winners may not offer themselves as candidates. The value of the prize is £500.
