The prize is awarded annually to the best physics major attending a 100-level Physics class. The recipient will be nominated by the Head of the School of Chemical and Physical Sciences.

The value of the prize is determined after consideration of the income from the fund. The balance of income not expended shall be added to the fund.

The recipient will be asked to write a letter of appreciation which will be forwarded appropriately.
