2. The prize shall be offered annually and shall be awarded to the student judged by the Heads of Sections teaching European languages to be the best student in any European language taught at the University, other than French, provided that if in any year there should not be a student of a modern foreign language other than French worthy of the award, the Prize may be awarded to a student of French, judged by the Head of the School of European Languages to be worthy of the award.

3. The value of the prize in any year shall be determined by the Academic Board after consideration of the income from the fund and the number of prize winners.

4. Part of the prize money shall be spent on a book, or books.
