The prizes – worth $700 in the junior year, $800 in the intermediate year and $3000 in the senior year – recognise excellence and provide students with a real incentive to continue their studies in Physics.

Harry Messel Award for Excellence

The Harry Messel Award for Excellence – valued at $2,500 – is given every two or three years to recognise and reward excellence in contributions by staff or research students to the School's research and teaching.
