The Dr Henry Hutchinson Stewart Literary and Medical Prizes are among the oldest awards to be offered by NUI. First established in 1888 following a bequest from the estate of Dr Henry Hutchinson Stewart, these awards were initially made by the Royal University of Ireland until its dissolution in 1908 and were then continued by NUI. Under the terms of the trust it was provided that two-thirds of the income be allocated for the provision of medical awards and one-third for the provision of literary awards.
Students cannot apply directly to NUI for these awards. Nominations are made by Faculties, Schools and Departments.
