Sir Israel Gollancz Prize

Sir Israel Gollancz Prize is awarded biannually by the British Academy in honour of Israel Gollancz, a founder member and its first secretary, since 1924. Originally named "Biennial Prize for English Literature" and renamed after Gollancz's death in 1930, the award was established on the initiative of Frida Mond. It is awarded to scholars of Old and Early English language and literature and history of the English language.[1]
