University of Sydney Prizes and Awards

University prizes are awarded annually for academic achievement in particular units or programs of study. Applications are not required as students are nominated by the relevant faculty according to mid year and final year academic results.

Other prizes awarded which do require an application and submission of an essay or poem are: literary prizes, and the Wentworth Medal. These annual prizes require students to submit a written piece on a selected topic under a nom de plume.

What happens if I win a prize?

Prize winners are notified by an email which will include details of the prize and its value. Students will need to ensure their bank details are up to date in Sydney Student so that an EFT transfer can be made into their account.

For students who no longer have access to Sydney Student, they can complete and send in one of the following digital forms to process payment.
