Associate Professor Luke Connal was awarded the Grimwade Prize in Industrial Chemistry.
In 1906 Frederick Sheppard Grimwade presented a prize of one thousand pounds to the University for the promotion of the study of Industrial Chemistry. Eligible candidates consist of undergraduates, graduates of the University of Melbourne and graduates from other tertiary institution whose degrees are recognised by the Faculty of Science. Candidates must have spent at least three terms in study or research in a laboratory or laboratories of the University of Melbourne. A candidate should submit an original thesis within 5 years of completion, embodying the results of an investigation pursued by the candidate in Victoria, in connection with some branch of industrial chemistry (in a subject approved by the Faculty). The committee for the Grimwade Prize consists of the Head of the School of Chemistry and one or more members appointed annually by the Faculty of Science.
