Recognising excellence and innovation in the work of an academic or professional staff member of the University
This trust originated from a bequest of £5,000 from the will of Cornelius Regan to the University in 1943. The net income of the trust may be used by academic and professional staff to assist them to attend a relevant course of study, to attend a career development program or for other educational purposes in connection with their work at the University. The proposed development activity must be linked to a specific project and/or outcome. The objective of any award from this fund is to provide recognition and assistance to academic and professional staff, by enabling them to pursue a worthwhile activity in relation to their work. The Cornelius Regan Trust Award is valued at $5,000. In 2019 the University may award up to two Cornelius Regan Trust Awards.
