By a memorandum of gift signed and dated 30 May 2011, John Leonard William Soper gave the sum of $50,000 to the University, establishing 'The Melbourne Foundation for Business and Economics - The CS Soper and Joan Rydon Scholarship' in memory of his late father and mother. The scholarship is 'awarded on the basis of academic merit to a student undertaking the Honours program in Economics specialising in economic theory or mathematical economics'. Before awarding the scholarship, the dean of the Faculty of Business and Economics must consult the faculty Executive and gain endorsement from the Foundation Board. The foundation was made a University regulation in 2012 and the scholarship was first awarded to students in that same year.
