    Maud Isabella Aird

    Maud Isabella Aird bequeathed her residuary estate to the Victorian Ministry of Education which was later transferred to the University of Melbourne. The fund is used for a scholarship available to female students undertaking study within the Veterinary and Agricultural Sciences faculty and as per Maud's desire 'the recipient should be a student who would otherwise be unable to carry out her studies due to a lack of finance.'
