The Foundation was established in memory of Ernest Andrew Smith who was tragically killed in a traffic accident in London on 18 May 1983, aged 28.
The fund is available to provide financial assistance by way of grants or loans to graduates of Newcastle University, Oxford University, or the University of Edinburgh studying a postgraduate programme at any University in the United Kingdom, or graduates of any University in the United Kingdom studying any postgraduate programme at the three aforementioned Universities.
Typically grants and loans of around £500-£600 per annum are awarded to three or four candidates from each of the three Universities with which Andrew Smith was most closely connected.
Applications for 2017/18 will open in January 2018.
