Academic Prizes
CTC offers the following prizes of $500 each. These prizes are presented at the annual College dinner (Thursday 6 June TBC), on the basis of studies completed in the previous year.

Essay Prizes 

Essays must be at least 1,500 words in length, and should have been submitted in a CTC unit above level one. Students may nominate essays for consideration by providing a clean paper copy of the essay to the Academic Records Office before the end of December, with a 50-100 word abstract. Prizes are only awarded if an essay of sufficient merit is submitted. All research essays are considered for the Roma Mitchell prize and are not eligible for other essay prizes.
