The Alex Richardson Award


The Alex Richardson Award was founded in 2009 to enable a student with a spirit of adventure to engage personally with the culture of a Spanish speaking country.

The Award was set up in memory of Alex Richardson, whose untimely death occurred midway through his junior honours year at the University of St Andrews. Alex’s passion for life was unbridled and his interest in Spanish speaking cultures was fuelled by his own travels in Central America. Additional information: Alex Richardson Award Flyer (PDF)
