"every second year" Maybe "every other (alternate?) year"?
"First awarded in 1890, it was created in memory of Charles Darwin and carries a £1000 prize." Does it literally carry money on top of the medal? Maybe "First awarded in 1890, it was created in memory of Charles Darwin and us presented along with a £1000 prize."
"with the requirement being"
"at least 3 years" WP:MOSNUM, numbers under ten should be spelled out.
"has been awarded to 64 individuals" Comma after this phrase.
Add a sentence about the first and most recent winners.

All done; not sure about the caps on 'theory of evolution'. Ironholds (talk) 19:02, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
Support, except for the fact that I can't win it. Reywas92Talk 21:38, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
Qualify as a biologist, do ground-greaking research, move to a Commonwealth nation, stay there for three years, make friends with prestigious scientists who are fellows of the Royal Society, do more ground-breaking research that impresses said friends, meaningfully point out the medal, make friends with the B-side award committee, get your friends to nominate, suck up to the awards people... Is it all that much work? :P. Actually it has elements of RfA in it, heh. Be careful with your work, suck up to the RfA regulars, try not to piss anyone else off..

Support Can't see any problem. —Chris!ct 00:19, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Support Would be nice to somewhere refer to the fact the winner gets an actual physical silver medal. Presumably there isn't a suitably licensed photo of the medal? Would also like to see a bit more history in the intro, such as controversial or interesting winners! Feel free to split the intro into more than one paragraph as it looks a bit cramped to me. But these are relatively minor, overall very good! Suicidalhamster (talk) 18:07, 9 January 2009 (UTC)
Ehh, the closest to interesting is Francis Darwin (ZOMG NEPOTISM). The problem is that the history is very difficult to find online, unfortunately. I'm going to (hopefully) get some books about the Society as a whole and that might show some things. Ironholds (talk) 18:12, 9 January 2009 (UTC)
Is the fact that Motoo Kimura was the first Asian scientist to win the medal interesting enough? (I'm not actually convinced myself that it is!) Suicidalhamster (talk) 19:24, 9 January 2009 (UTC)
Actually I don't understand how he won it. Neither Japan or the US are commonwealth members :S. Ironholds (talk) 06:19, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
Indeed. He was in Japan from mid 1950s until 1993 so can't see how he had time to spend 3 years in the commonwealth! I'll have a hunt for a reference which talks about his eligibility for the award. Suicidalhamster (talk) 17:38, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
Excellent, thanks. I guess if you fail to find something we can include the fact that he was included as an interesting fact! Ironholds (talk) 18:17, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
