The Prize commemorates Dr Robin and Mrs Patricia Tillyard, who were important contributors to the formation and early life of the University as well as to the wider Canberra community.
This prize is offered by the Australian National University.
The Tillyard Prize is the oldest and most prestigious prize available to bachelor degree students of the University. Originally established in 1940, the Prize is awarded to the student whose personal qualities and contribution to University life have been outstanding and who in the year of the award has completed a Degree of Bachelor with Honours.
Nominations can be submitted by students (either for themselves or for other suitably qualified students) or by Deans of ANU Colleges, Heads or Directors of Discipline areas, Departments, Schools, Centres, Programs or other academic staff of the University.
