AWARDS & PRIZES

Awards and Prizes

The Anne Roder Prize in Old Testament


The prize has been established by Flinders University and the Adelaide College of Divinity, in memory of Anne Frances Roder. Anne Roder was a student, tutor and friend of the Adelaide College of Divinity and the School of Theology at Flinders University.

 

This prize is awarded to students to encourage those who, like Anne, display critical excellence in the study of the Old Testament. The Adelaide College of Divinity endows this prize.

 

The value of the prize is $200.

 

The prize is awarded annually to the student who:

  • is enrolled in the Flinders Bachelor of Theology or the ACD Bachelor of Ministry;

  • in the relevant year has enrolled in the introductory topic in Old Testament offered in both degrees;

  • has the highest total mark received in that topic.

 

The Examinations Board of the School of Theology and the Examination Committee of the Adelaide College of Divinity (at a combined meeting) determines the eligibility and ranking of students enrolled in the relevant topic. If two or more students receive the same total mark in one year the prize is shared between those students.
