Charles A. Lockwood Prize/Medal and Grants
*NB. These awards are no longer offered*
The Charles A. Lockwood Prize and associated medal for the best proffered student podium (spoken) presentation at a Society meeting were established in 2009. The prize and medal commemorate Charlie Lockwood, a PSGB Council member who died tragically in a motorcycle accident during 2008, and celebrate the thought, dedication and inspiration he provided to his students. One of those students, Katharine Balolia, then PSGB Student Representative, led a fundraising drive to establish the prize and pay for the casting of the medal, which was designed by Katharine’s brother Yello Balolia using an original illustration by John Sibbick.
