Book Prizes for the year 2023

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 and well-wishers who believe in scholarship and academic excellence via the award of Book Prizes for this academic year 2023.

As in the previous year, a Book Prize is awarded to the top performing student in a Year 1 subject each trimester that subject is offered. 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 JCU, Singapore at the time of the award). 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 trimester via their JCU email ID.

We are therefore pleased to announce that Book Prizes for the following Year 1 subjects shall be available this Academic Year 2023.
