Clare Harrison Memorial Fund
The Clare Harrison Memorial Fund was established in October 1995 to commemorate Liverpool vet student Clare Harrison, who was tragically killed while riding at a horse trials, just as she began her fourth year at the school.
The object of the fund is to help BVSc students who find themselves in severe financial difficulty. Since its inception, the Clare Harrison fund has given more than 300 grants to students across all five years of the undergraduate veterinary degree programme. These have principally, but not exclusively, been to those in their fourth and fifth years when the rigour of examinations allows no time for vacation or term-time earning.
The Fund is endowed with donations from her family and friends and the School of Veterinary Science. The endowment produces a small income from which discretionary grants can be made to students of the Institute of Veterinary Science. The fund has also been consistently supported by the students themselves from donations and a surplus that is achieved on their summer ball.
