Coulter Prizes

The Coulter Prizes were founded in 1787 by James Coulter, a Glasgow merchant who had been an undergraduate in Arts 1730. The prizes were intended for "the encouragement of composition and elocution".

The other prize is awarded annually, alternately in Greek and Latin, for an essay on classical literature, or the best dissertation.
