Book Prizes for the Year 2021

Book Prizes for Year 1 subjects

The Singapore campus of James Cook University is honoured and encouraged to be able to enjoy the strong support of industry partners who believe in scholarship and academic excellence via the award of Book Prizes.

A Book Prize is awarded to the top performing student in a Year 1 subject, each trimester.  Each Book Prize comes with a Certificate and a $250 cash award (terms apply e.g. the recipient of the award must remain a student at JCUS). The book prize (cash award) is awarded to a student who has obtained highest total aggregate marks for the subject. The subject lecturer will nominate the recipient if there is a tie. Campus Dean’s decision is final without an appeal process. Information on the award ceremony will be provided to awardees in the following term via their JCU email ID.

We are therefore pleased to announce that Book Prizes for the following Year 1 subjects shall be available in SP51/2021.
