DM Myers University Medal

The DM Myers University Medal is awarded annually to the outstanding undergraduate student graduating in each faculty (usually an honours graduate). The medallion was donated by the first Vice-Chancellor of La Trobe University, Dr David Myers, CMG. The medallion was designed by Andor Meszaros, a medallionist and sculptor of international repute, who came to Australia from Hungary in 1939 and whose major works include the King George V Memorial Statue (King George V Hospital, Sydney) in marble, an altarpiece in the Canterbury Cathedral and the 1956 Olympic Medallion.
