Andrew Stewart Prize

The Andrew Stewart Memorial Graduate Prize is endowed by the University of Alberta. The award was named for Andrew Stewart, President of the University from 1950 to 1959, under whose administration the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research was created. Approximately 16 awards are granted each year (the number depends on how much the endowment earns).
