Professor Janet Holmes established this prize in 2013, via the Victoria University Foundation, to encourage students of Sociolinguistics at Victoria University to continue to postgraduate study. It recognises the top student in Advanced Sociolinguistics (LING 330) in the School of Linguistics and Applied Language Studies.
The prize is awarded to the top student in Advanced Sociolinguistics who, preferably, is intending to continue to postgraduate study.
One prize is given every second year. If in any year there is no suitable recipient of the prize, the funds may be used in a subsequent year.
The prize is awarded on the recommendation of the Head of School, School of Linguistics and Applied Language Studies in consultation with the Course Co-ordinator(s) of LING 330.
Recipients will be asked to write a letter of thanks, which will be forwarded to the donor.
