   Cranmore Fund [F7914]

Cranmore Fund [F7914]

1. The Cranmore Fund was established by an initial gift of $20,000 by Dr Richard Bruce Lefroy and a subsequent gift of $1000, in terms of a Deed of Trust under which scholarships (called Cranmore Scholarships), grants-in-aid and travel grants may be awarded to promote the study of the care of persons suffering continuing disability (chronic illness).

2.(1) The fund is used to provide for scholarships called Cranmore Scholarships and to provide for grants-in-aid and travel grants.

(2) Income derived from the capital sum may be used for these purposes or allowed to accrue at the discretion of the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences in the light of advice received from the appointed committee referred to in 6 below, provided that 10 per cent of all income will be capitalised every year.

3. Awards, when made, are to promote the study of the care of persons suffering continuing disability (chronic illness).

4. Eligibility is confined to graduates or senior undergraduates, in medicine, nursing psychology or social work who put forward a well-defined programme of study in the area specified in 3 above.

5. Preference will be given to those who are or who intend to be engaged in this work on a full-time basis and who intend to spend at least 12 months working in this field in Western Australia following the termination of the tenure of the scholarship.

6.(1) Awards are made by the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences on the recommendation of a committee consisting:

(a) Dr R. B. Lefroy during his lifetime or until he retires, or his nominee;

(b) the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences for the time being, as chair; and

(c) any other person or persons whom they may wish to co-opt from time to time.

(2) When Dr Lefroy ceases to be a member of the committee the Senate, on the recommendation of the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences, determines the constitution of the committee bearing in mind any wishes which may have been issued by Dr Lefroy.

7. The Vice-Chancellor has power to prescribe the manner in which payment of each award is made.
