The B R Keith Modern Language Prize is a current, annually offered, academic prize. It was originally awarded regardless of language but from 1992 individual prizes were awarded for French and Chinese (Mandarin).

It is named in honour of the former languages and history teacher, co-author of the College's Centenary History of 1961, 'Bert' Keith.
