Reid Birrell Prizes

List of Awards


The Reid Birrell Prizes were founded in 1930 by the bequest of William Reid Birrell of Glasgow. In his will, Birrell directed his Trustees to pay the annual income from his estate to his mother and thereafter to his sister. The life renter was allowed to dispose of one-quarter of the capital of the estate but the remaining three quarters was to be disposed on the death of the sister to the University so that the income could provide Reid Birrell Prizes in Naval Architecture.

The prizes are open to matriculated students of Naval Architecture who are pursuing a full graduating course for the degree of BSc in Naval Architecture, and are awarded for distinction in the classes of Naval Architecture III and IV.
