The Sidney Prize and Other Prizes at the University of Sydney
The University of Sydney Prizes are awarded in a number of disciplines at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels to students who have excelled in their studies. The prize-money is generous and reflects the importance of the subject area to the University.
History and Culture prizes
The Sidney Prize is a prize of a few thousand dollars awarded every other year for the best unpublished research article stemming from a PhD or masters degree in a discipline within the History, Art or Cultural Studies department at the University of Sydney. The articles should be of interest to scholars in their field and have been published in the preceding calendar year. The prize is administered by a committee and the selection criteria are as follows:
2022 Sydney International Tennis Classic | Total Prize Money For Men’s ATP, Women’s WTA Tournament
In the first week of January each year the tennis world is in full swing for the upcoming Sydney International. The tournament draws both the ATP and WTA players who will be competing for their share of a $521,000 prize purse.
Whether you are a bettor or just a fan of the sport, the Sydney International is an important event in the calendar. It is also a major fundraiser for the sport in Australia.
This year, the men’s event will have a total prize money of $87,370 while the women’s will have an additional $108,000. It is not surprising to see a big increase in the total prize money of this tennis tournament in 2022 as it is now a WTA 500 tournament.
A new prize has been established in memory of the late Professor of English, Sidney Cox (1927-52). This prize is being offered to undergraduate students writing in the English language. It is based on those high standards of originality and integrity that Professor Cox set for himself and for his students.
It is open to any type of undergraduate writing in the English language and there is no limit to the quantity or variety of material that can be submitted by individual students. The prize is open to any student who is enrolled as a full-time undergraduate at the University of Sydney and is studying English.
The prize is awarded on the recommendation of the Head of Department of English and the Postgraduate Coordinator. The prize is open to students who have successfully completed their first or second year units of study in the Department of English, and who are currently enrolled in the Masters by Research or PhD program at the University of Sydney.
