Below are several prizes that are awarded to students within the History Department on an annual basis.
M F Howson Prize
The M F Howson prize is open for competition among graduate students holding a degree of any university who are registered for any higher degree in the University of Lancaster. The prize (to the value of £100) may be awarded annually for an essay in local history to be submitted to the head of department. The prize was first awarded in 1968.
The head of the department of history or his deputy will be glad to advise intending candidates on the suitability of the subject on which they propose to write.
The regulations for the Queen's studentship and scholarships are available in the department of history. Awards are made by the Senate on the recommendations of the head of department of history each year to the best qualified candidate for a graduate course or a research degree in history (studentship of £300, first awarded in 1967).
Joseph Hertford Sutton Prize
This prize, to be first awarded in 1994, was founded as a result of a bequest from the estate of the late Mr Sutton, a former Lancaster headmaster and himself a student of history, and is awarded to the student with the best master's degree result in taught master's courses administered by the department. The prize, which is given in the form of a book token, is worth £30 per annum.
The prize will not be given in any year, if, in the view of the board of examiners, no candidate merits such an award. The prize will be announced in October of each year.
