Havenga prize

The Havenga Prize (Havengaprys in Afrikaans) is a prize awarded annually by the Suid-Afrikaanse Akademie vir Wetenskap en Kuns (South African Academy for Science and Arts) to a candidate for original research in the Sciences since 1945. Candidates are judged on the quality of research publications and evidence of the promotion of Afrikaans. The Havenga prize can only be awarded to a person once, but can be awarded posthumously.

Nicolaas Christiaan Havenga (1882–1957)

The prize is named after Finance Minister Nicolaas Christiaan Havenga, who donated £50 annually to the academy for the prize from 1946. A bequest of R4 000 was received from Havenga's estate and R14 000 from the estate of his wife, Olive. Since 1979 the prize has been awarded in the form of a gold medal.
