  • 1See the Vice-Chancellor's Notice on p. 602.

  • 2Statutes and Ordinances, p. 757. In 1960, the Iranian government of the time offered the University an annual grant of £600 to establish a Studentship in memory of Professor E. G. Browne, Sir Thomas Adams’s Professor of Arabic, in appreciation of his contribution to Persian studies. The E. G. Browne Memorial Research Studentship was established by Grace 7 of 29 October 1960. The grant from the Iranian government ceased in the late 1970s and the amendment to the regulations for the Fund removes the reference to a continuing benefaction. The residual amount in the Fund is just over £50,000 as at 31 July 2009.
