HEBDOMADAL COUNCIL


1 Decree

Council has made the following decree, to come into effect on 13
October.

Decree (1): Establishment of Sir Henry Strakosch Memorial Fund

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the Medical
Sciences Board, establishes a Sir Henry Strakosch Memorial Fund with
an extremely generous donation from the Sir Henry Strakosch Memorial
Trust, principally to provide grants over a period of about ten years
for students travelling to South Africa as part of their clinical
studies.

Text of Decree (1)

1 The University accepts with gratitude from the Sir Henry
Strakosch Memorial Trust a sum to establish a fund to be known as the
Sir Henry Strakosch Memorial Fund.

2 The fund shall be administered by a board of management
consisting of the Director of Clinical Studies or his or her nominee,
the Head of the Department of Paediatrics or his or her nominee, and
one person appointed by the Medical Sciences Board for a period to be
determined by the Board.

3 Subject only to the receipt of a sufficient number of
appropriate applications and to the circumstances described in clause
4 below, the fund shall be used to make grants, to be known as
Strakosch travel grants, to twenty clinical students each year in
order to assist them to spend part of the clinical course in one or
more medical institutions in the Republic of South Africa. The
initial value of each grant shall be £750 but the board of
management shall have authority to increase this figure if the cost
of travel to South Africa increases. If an insufficient sum should be
available in the fund to make twenty grants, such number of grants
may be made as shall extinguish the fund.

4 If in any year the board of management shall decide that it is
not in the best interest of clinical students to travel to South
Africa, the board shall have discretion to use the fund in that year
to make bursaries available, at a level and on terms and conditions
to be determined by the board, to enable nationals of the Republic of
South Africa to undertake a period of study in the Clinical School.

5 Income to the fund which is not expended in any year shall be
carried forward for expenditure in subsequent years.

6 Council shall have power to alter this decree from time to
time, provided that the main objects of the fund, as defined in
clauses 3 and 4 above, are always kept in view.
