At the Faculty of Arts Awards evening (25 May 2016) at the Deakin Edge auditorium in Federation Square, Melbourne, the Dean of Arts Professor Rae Frances presented award certificates and cheques to undergraduate students who received the highest grades in the many disciplines of the Arts Faculty.
Two awards were conferred upon students who excelled in Ukrainian Studies.
Tessa Benn received the Ilko Prystasz Memorial Prize, given to the student in the second year of Ukrainian Studies who achieved the highest marks in the first year of study. This prize is for students who commenced Ukrainian at the introductory level in the preceding year.
The Vasyl and Stefania Fokshan Memorial Prize, awarded to a student in the third year of Ukrainian Studies for the best results in the second year of study, was won by Rosalie Marshall.
In all there are four undergraduate prizes in Ukrainian Studies, three of them – the Prystasz and Fokshan Prizes, as well as the Stepan Soldat Memorial Prize – named in honour of early benefactors of Monash Ukrainian Studies who bequeathed part of their estate to the support of the discipline.
The fourth, the Anna Berehulak Memorial Scholarship, is granted to a student who proceeds to fourth-year honours in Ukrainian Studies with a thesis on a topic in Ukrainian literature. It commemorates Dr Anna Berehulak (1967-1999), whose Monash doctoral thesis examined Ukrainian historical novels through the lens of postcolonial theory.
