The income from the Peel Memorial Fund (now c. €750) p.a. is utilised to provide prizes for award annually on the same conditions as the Graduate of the Year Award. The prizes take the form of books or instruments, to be selected by the winner but subject in every case to the approval of the College/Faculty Heads concerned.


*Note: These awards are funded from endowments made by the respective donors to the University for awards to be made in perpetuity. The funds donated are invested, and the annual income is the amount available for the award. Due to fluctuation in the investment market, the amounts available from year to year may vary, upwards and downwards; for this reason, the value of any award referred to in this section is indicative only, and may be higher or lower when the amount of the award is completed.
