The Wallace Watson Award is awarded to an undergraduate or graduate student to undertake an expedition of a challenging nature in a mountainous or remote area anywhere in the world. Wallace Watson (2000, Chemistry) was an undergraduate at St Catz, who achieved much in his short life, through combining determination with consideration for others, and success with modesty and humour. The Wallace Watson Award was set up in 2001 to give St Catz students the opportunities that Wallace grasped with both hands and foster an inner strength of character, an appreciation of other cultures and a broadening of the mind.

The 2018 winner will be announced at the Wallace Watson Award Lecture on 8th March, where last year's winners will speak about their experiences. George Todd (2015, Engineering) and Alexander Langedijk (2015, Physics) will tell the tale of their adventure retracing a route along the west side of Lake Malawi by foot and cycle, and Katarina Martinovic (2014, Physics) and Guillermo Pascual Perez (2014, Mathematics) will enlighten us on their trip crossing Cuba, from Havana to Baracoa, meeting local people and listening to their stories of life in the country.
