Regulations and Statutes UTR6.034 No. 1 Rest Home Voluntary Aid Bursary (1921 - )


The University received £307 7s. 2d. From a committee representing subscribers who wished 'to provide a memorial of the No. 1 Red Cross Rest Home'. The subscribers 'requested that it be used to found a bursary for the children of men who were members of the Australian Imperial Forces who have died or been totally incapacitated in the First World War'. In 2000, after 'the Council recognised that the bursary could no longer be awarded as originally intended', applications were opened to any student enrolled at the University. The bursary was made a University regulation in 1921.
