The Heather Kerr Prize in Postgraduate English

This Prize has been established by a donation to the University by Clement Macintyre and family, in memory of the late Heather Kerr who had a close relationship with the University as a staff member for over twenty years.

The Prize will be awarded biennially with a value of $1000 with the first award being made in 2020.

To be eligible for the Prize, students must have been enrolled in a postgraduate degree in the Department of English and Creative Writing at the University of Adelaide in the two year period immediately prior to the award of the Prize and had published or had accepted for publication, a refereed article in a scholarly journal during the two year period prior to the awarding of the Prize. 

If the article is jointly authored, the Prize money will be adjusted to reflect the share of the work made by the winning student. In determining the winning student, the selection committee will give preference to a work published in any field of literary studies.
