College of New Caledonia Awards Program Establishment and Governance of Awards I General The College of New Caledonia will adminis- ter awards that are made available without

Revised 17.12.18 2017–18 Scholarships, bursaries and awards catalogue 5 restrictions deemed to be discriminatory. It will administer awards that define, in terms acceptable to the College of New Caledonia Board, the eligibility of students to receive the award. The College of New Caledonia Board may decline awards containing criteria that it deems not to be in the best interests of the College. All scholarship/bursary donations to the College of New Caledonia are fully tax deductible. II Annual Awards Annual awards are those which are donated to the College on a yearly basis. The total amount of the donation is awarded.

1. Annual donations can be made in any amount, however, a $500 minimum is recommended as being a suitable award. Donors can specify both the criteria and name of the award subject to College Board approval. Donations of less than $500 are very welcome contributions to the College of New Caledonia General Endowment Fund. 2. The recommended level for an annual award is for the purposes of guidance only. III Endowment Funds Contributions to the College of New Caledonia Endowments are added to the principal of the endowment in question. Awards are made on the basis of accrued interest resulting from the investment of the principal.

The College operates under very strict regulations as to where funds may be invested.

Policy For the purpose of this Fund, an “endow- ment” is defined as “a cash donation or group of cash donations made to an insti- tution for scholarship or bursary purposes where the donation or group of donations will be held in trust by the institution for at least 25 years and where only the income generated will be used for that purpose”. a) Named Endowment Funds Named Endowment Funds require larger initial amounts as the awards given are dependent on accrued interest. A $10,000 minimum is recommended to provide a suitable investment base although smaller amounts will be accepted if large enough to support a suitable award from accrued interest.

The principal is held in perpetuity by the College of New Caledonia. Donors can specify both the criteria and the name of the award, subject to College Board approval.

b) College of New Caledonia General Endowment Fund Donations to the College of New Caledonia General Endowment Fund can be made in any amount by any number of people. Donations become part of the original fund and are anonymous unless otherwise requested by the donor. IV Governance 1. All new Awards, including the criteria to be used for the selection of award winners must be approved by the College of New Caledonia Board. 2. In the case of Annual Awards, the College reserves the right to withhold awards donated by individuals or organizations where the funds required have not actually been received.

3. In the case of Endowment Funds, if the invested funds do not provide the necessary income for an endowed award: a top-up to achieve the face value would be requested; or, the face value or the number of awards would be reduced; or, the award may be withheld pending interest accrual. Given that endowed awards rely solely on investment income, the College cannot guarantee the payment of any awards except those from the funds held by the College.

4. The College of New Caledonia Board reserves the right to change the terms governing an award, so that they may better meet new conditions, may fully carry out the intentions of the donor, or maintain the applicability of the award. The rights so reserved shall be exer- cised only by resolution of the College of New Caledonia Board, provided that a year’s notice shall be given by the Board of any proposed change and that the donor or his/her representa- tive, if known, shall be consulted about the proposed change.
