Vice-Chancellors' Fund

Explanatory note

Council has learned with gratitude of donations from members of the
Chancellor's Court of Benefactors, in honour of three recent
Vice-Chancellors, Lord Neill of Bladen, Professor Sir Richard
Southwood, and Sir Peter North, to create a fund to provide financial
assistance for those reading for graduate research degrees of the

In Ch. IX, Sect. I (Statutes, 1997, p. 736), insert new

Decree (10): Withdrawal from examinations

Explanatory note

It has come to notice that Ch. VII, Sect. II. D, cll. 14 and 15
(Examination Decrees, 1999, p. 1080, ll. 28--38) appear
to be mutually inconsistent, in that the former precludes withdrawal
by a candidate from an examination after the written part of the
examination is complete, while cl. 15 prescribes that a candidate who
fails to attend a viva voce examination shall be considered to have
withdrawn unless he or she can satisfy the Vice-Chancellor and
Proctors that the reason for non-attendance was illness or some other
urgent and reasonable cause; moreover, similar, but consistent,
provisions are made in the Regulations of the Proctors concerning the
Conduct of Examinations, which also replicate cl. 13 of the decree
(ibid., from p. 1068, l. 20 to p. 1069, l. 3, as amended by
Gazette No. 4526, 28 October 1999, p. 258). In order to
correct the position, and since provisions governing withdrawal from
examinations seem more appropriately placed in the regulations than
in a decree which otherwise governs examination times and entry of
names, Council has made the following decree deleting the clauses
concerned.

Text of Decree (10)

In Examination Decrees, 1999, p. 1080, delete ll. 23--38
and renumber existing cll. 16--21 (from p. 1080, l. 40 to p. 1081, l.
25, as amended by Decree (1) of 16 March 2000, Gazette,
p. 940) as cll. 13--18.

Decree (14): Vice-Presidency (Graduates) of
the Oxford University Student Union

Explanatory note

In 1998 Council made a decree permitting the Student Union to appoint
an additional full-time officer to serve as Graduate Sabbatical
Officer, now known as the Vice-President (Graduates). That decree
covered a three-year period, before the end of which the position was
to be reviewed. Such a review has now taken place, and Council has
agreed that the arrangement should be extended, for a further
three-year period in the first instance, on the understanding that
the Student Union should continue to cover from its existing
resources approximately 30 per cent of the cost of the post over the
three-year period. The following decree provides accordingly.

Statute (2): Burtt Davy Research Scholarship

Explanatory note

In 1965 the University received a bequest from Dr J. Burtt Davy for
the foundation of a scholarship for graduates of the University who
undertook to carry out research in Taxonomic Botany and/or Tropical
Plant Ecology. Because of the internationalisation of postgraduate
studies within the University since 1965, the Sherardian Professor of
Botany and the Director of the Forestry Institute, who are the
awarders ex officio of the scholarship, consider, with the
concurrence of the Biological Sciences Board and the General Board,
that the intentions of the benefactor would be best served by opening
eligibility for the scholarship to any postgraduate student in the
specified subject area who is registered for a postgraduate degree at
the University. The following statute, and the decree to be made by
Council if the statute is approved, provide accordingly. At the same
time, opportunity is taken to transfer the general supervision of the
scholarship from the Biological Sciences Board to the Life and
Environmental Sciences Board, under the new governance structures.

(2) WHEREAS it is expedient to change the present
provisions governing the Burtt Davy Research Scholarship, NOW THE
UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD, in exercise of the powers in that behalf
conferred upon it by the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge Act,
1923, and of all other powers enabling it, ENACTS, subject to the
approval of Her Majesty in Council, AS FOLLOWS.

In Tit. XVI (Statutes, 1997, p. 165, as renumbered by
the Statute approved by Congregation on 16 June 1998 and Statute (2)
approved by Congregation on 29 June 1999, Gazette, Vol.
128, pp. 1353, 1380; Vol. 129, pp. 1433, 1482), insert Sect. LXIV:

be called the Burtt Davy Research Scholarship, for research in
`Taxonomic Botany and/or Tropical Plant Ecology preferably in
connection with Tropical Forestry at the Herbaria of the Department
of Botany and of the Imperial Forestry Institute, University of
Oxford') after payment of any necessary expenses shall be devoted to
the maintenance of a Burtt Davy Research Scholarship, to be awarded
from time to time to any postgraduate student who is registered for a
postgraduate degree at the University of Oxford and who undertakes to
carry out research into Taxonomy and Ecology or into the use of
biochemical, microscopical, genetical, or such other methods for the
classification of plants as may be approved by the Sherardian
Professor of Botany and the Director of the Forestry Institute
(hereinafter called `the awarders'), provided that such part of the
value of the scholarship as the awarders shall determine may be paid
by way of reimbursement of travel, exploration, and other expenses
incidental to the scholar's research.

2. The scholarship shall be placed under the general supervision
of the Life and Environmental Sciences Board.

3. Scholars shall be selected jointly by the awarders, who shall
determine the value and tenure of the scholarship (provided that the
tenure of any one holder shall not in any case exceed three years)
and any other conditions of award not inconsistent with this statute.

4. The awarders shall on the occasion of each award report to the
said Divisional Board the name of the scholar, the value and tenure
of the scholarship, and the subject of his or her research.

5. Surplus income arising from whatever cause shall be carried
forward for expenditure in subsequent years.

6. Congregation shall have power to alter this statute from time
to time, provided that the main object of the testator shall always
be kept in view.'

renumbered by Decree (1) of 11 June 1998, Gazette, Vol.
