For Students in the Faculty of Education, Humanities and Law or Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences


for an outstanding undergraduate student essay related to

  • ethnicity
  • racism
  • human rights
  • multiculturalism
  • social justice

Nominations are called for the award of two Greek Orthodox Community of SA Inc - Con Marinos AM Prizes (undergraduate prizes). Each prize has a value of $500.

Each of the annual prizes will be awarded for an outstanding essay submitted for assessment during either semester of the academic year by a student enrolled in an undergraduate degree in either of the two sponsoring Faculties or in the cross-Faculty Bachelor of Arts. One of the prizes will be awarded for an essay submitted for a topic in the Faculty of Education, Humanities and Law and the other for an essay submitted for a topic in the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences.

The essay submitted must:

  1. be on ‘a subject related to one of the following areas: ethnicity, racism, human rights, multiculturalism or social justice’
  2. have a maximum word length of 4,500 words, and
  3. have received a High Distinction (HD)
  4. be identical in content to that presented for the topic
  5. be a clean copy of the work, not the assessed copy.


Prizes will be awarded for the best submission in each Faculty which meets these criteria. The merit of the work will be assessed according to the selection committee's independent judgement.

No prize will be awarded if the selection committee decides that entries are not of sufficient merit.

The full prize rules can be found here.
