History or background of award

The Dean's Prize was established in 2017 through the generous support of Gregor and Heather Coster. The prizes recognise the academic excellence of students pursuing a Bachelor of Health degree and further encourages student's pursuit of careers in different health services.

Decision makers and selection process

The prize winners will be selected by a panel including the Dean of Health (or their nominee) and the Associate Dean Academic, Equity and Students (or their nominee). The prizes will be awarded at the end of trimester two.


There will be three annual prizes awarded at the value of $1000. One to a student in first year, one to a student in second year and one to a student in third year of the Bachelor of Health degree. These awards will be made consecutively over the next five years (2018 - 2022 inclusive).
