Notice of a benefaction

9 May 2012

The Vice-Chancellor gives notice that he has received with gratitude a generous benefaction totalling $10m over five years from KAUST UK Ltd, a company wholly owned by King Abdullah University of Science and Technology. The sum of $1m of the benefaction has been deployed to support the Department of Genetics; the remainder is to be used to establish a Fund to support work in the School of the Biological Sciences, with a preference for bioscience and bioengineering.

The Council are submitting a Grace to the Regent House (Grace 2, p. 609) for the approval of regulations to govern the KAUST Fund for Biological Sciences. It is hoped that the Fund will be sufficient in time to support named posts in the School of the Biological Sciences.
