The Honourable Frederick Sheppard Grimwade presented a prize to the University for the promotion of the study of Industrial Chemistry.
Eligible candidates consist of undergraduates, graduates of the University of Melbourne and graduates from other tertiary institutions whose degrees are recognised by the Faculty of Science.
Candidates must have spent no fewer than two semesters in study or research in a laboratory or laboratories of the University of Melbourne at some stage of their career. Candidates must have made a significant contribution to the field of industrial chemistry.
Candidates should submit for examination a copy of an original thesis or papers embodying the results of an investigation pursued by the candidate in Victoria, within the past five years (ending 31 December 2017), in connection with some branch of industrial chemistry. The subject of the investigation must be approved by the Faculty of Science.
Candidates will be assessed on scientific ability, originality and chemical knowledge; and the importance of the work with respect to its bearing on any branch of industrial chemistry such as metallurgy, pharmacy, agriculture or the manufacture of chemical products.
The committee for the Grimwade Prize consists of the head of the School of Chemistry and one or more members appointed annually by the Faculty of Science.
