The official bit:

"One or more Smith-Knight Prizes, and one or more Rayleigh-Knight Prizes for essays on any subject in Mathematics and its applications, are offered for competition in 2007. The Prizes are open to:

(a) any member of the University, if at the latest date for the submission of essays at least three but not more than five, complete terms have passed since the term of his or her admission as a Graduate Student; or

The essay should include an abstract of no more than 300 words describing the content of the essay in nontechnical terms.

This statement will be endorsed by the supervisor.
