Moreau Leaving Scholarships
Emile Edouard Moreau remains probably the most significant individual benefactor of the College and the Society.
In his will he indicated, among other things, a strong desire to provide support for Old Framlinghamians, including the establishment of a small number of leaving scholarships which would provide significant financial support over a period of three to four years. Clearly, he had in mind that his scholarships would provide the financial underpinning of a recipient’s tertiary education or early career. He recognised that funds might not permit scholarships to be awarded every year, but when funds were available, he wanted the scholarships to be material.
Following a review of the Moreau Bequest and the Moreau Benevolent fund over the course of 2004, the Trustees of the Society have created and funded a scheme of Moreau Leaving Scholarships. These will operate in addition to the provision of occasional support to needy Old Framlinghamians.
In outline, the scheme will operate along the following lines:
- Up to two scholarships will be awarded to Year 13 leavers each Academic year
- subject to funds being available, and there being suitable candidates
- Successful candidates will exemplify, to the highest degree, the qualities that make up an ideal “Member of the Society of Old Framlinghamians”
- The scholarships will initially be of £1000 per annum and will continue for three years, subject to scholars continuing to meet the following Scholarship Criteria:
- mandatory membership of SOF
- acceptance of an SOF mentor to provide support and guidance
- service on the Council of the SOF and attendance at (at least) two Council meetings a year - the Society will help with travel costs and will pay for the Scholar's supper after these events
- organising one “Leaving-Group” event per year for their cohort
- Candidates will be required to make a personal application for an award. The SOF has produced a booklet providing full details of the scheme, complete with notes-for-guidance and instructions on how to apply.
- applications will normally be made in the course of year 12 but must, anyway, be made by the end of the Autumn term in year 13
- The views of the key members of College staff will be sought through an agreed process
- A thorough selection process will be employed (in consultation with the College)
- a short-list, selected by an OF panel, informed by Personal Profiles submitted by the candidates, and supplemented by commentaries provided by key members of staff (short-listing completed by the end of the Spring Term)
- final selection by interviews at the College in the course of the Summer term (by a small interview panel led by the President of the Society)
Full details of the Scholarship Scheme are published in booklet form for distribution to students in Years 12 and 13. The booklet is also available as an Adobe PDF document on the OF Website.
