The Ryder Memorial Prize founded in memory of the late Admiral of the Fleet, Sir Alfred Phillipps Ryder, K.C.B., who died on the 30th April, 1888 was a prize of books awarded to the Sub-Lieutenant who placed highest in the examination in French at the Royal Naval College, Greenwich.

The Navy List describes the Prize as follows:[1]

The Ryder Memorial Fund consists of a sum of about 160 pounds invested in Government securities.

The dividend arising from this sum is employed annually in the provision of a prize of a book or books, to be awarded to the Lieutenant who takes the first place in French at the annual examinations in foreign languages, a colloquial knowledge of the language being necessary to render a candidate eligible for the award of the prize.

The Ryder Prize may be withheld in any year it is considered advisable.
