Eamon Molloy Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Eamon Molloy Memorial Scholarship was established by Asian alumni in memory of Eamon Mark Paul Molloy QSM. Eamon Molloy touched the lives of many overseas students at the University of Canterbury from the 1960's onwards, acting as a guardian for many, overseeing their welfare in Christchurch, setting up orientation programmes and advising and supporting the students.

The scholarship is awarded annually to a student from Asia at UC.

These scholarships recognise high academic achievement, as well as leadership potential and sporting, cultural and community involvement. Scholarships attract some of the brightest students to UC, enabling them to attend university regardless of their financial circumstances.

Park and Paulay Earthquake Engineering Fund

The Park and Paulay Earthquake Engineering Fund was established to honour the groundbreaking work of Professor Bob Park (1933-2004) and Professor Tom Paulay (1922-2009).

These two world-class academics and researchers in UC’s Department of Civil and Natural Resources Engineering made significant contributions in the fields of structural and earthquake engineering.
