Hamilton Prize in Mathematics
Every year the nine best students of mathematics are awarded the Hamilton prize.
Mathematics departments in Trinity College Dublin, University College Dublin, Dublin City University, University College Cork, NUI Galway, NUI Maynooth, University of Limerick, TU Dublin and Queen's University Belfast are invited to nominate their "best" student in their penultimate year of undergraduate mathematical studies. The selection of the best student is based either on the results of the annual assessment of the year’s performance or on the best performance in the ordinary institution examinations in Mathematics at the end of the penultimate year. The nomination is left to the discretion of the Department of Mathematics in each of the institutions to decide.
The prizes are awarded at an annual ceremony in Academy House on 16 October and are sponsored by Ibec.
