This Prize arises from a donation of Stg1000 in 1886 by the late John Tinline, Esq., of Amuri, for the encouragement of English Literature and English Composition. Until 1946 the fund was administered by the University of New Zealand and the University Grants Committee, and one Scholarship was available. In 1965 the fund was divided to provide separate Prizes at the University of Auckland, the Victoria University of Wellington, the University of Canterbury and the University of Otago.
