Cowan Medal and Cowan (Blackstone) Medals

List of Awards

Description

The Cowan Medal and Cowan (Blackstone) Medals were founded in 1836 and 1839 by James Cowan, undergraduate in Arts 1819, LLD 1834, schoolmaster in Sunderland. They were amalgamated in 1986 to create a single medals fund, from which medals may be awarded to students in any of the classes of Greek, Latin or Classical Civilisation, who are deemed by the Head of Department to be of sufficient distinction.

The Cowan Greek Medal is normally awarded to the best student in Senior Honours Greek; the Cowan Classical Civilisation Medal to the best student in Senior Honours Classics, and the Cowan Latin Medal to the best student in Level 1 Latin. Level 2 students in Latin are eligible to enter an examination for the Cowan (Blackstone) Medal.
