The Renee Fauvette Erdos bequest

A bequest to the University of Sydney makes an enduring contribution to the advancement of teaching, research and learning. The Fauvette Loureiro Memorial Artists Travel Scholarship celebrates a bequest of the late Renee Fauvette Erdos, educator and founder of the History Teachers' Association of NSW, in memory of her mother, Fauvette Loureiro. Fauvette Loureiro was the eldest daughter of Portuguese painter Arthur Loureiro (1853-1932), who came to Australia in 1885 and established an association with the Heidelberg School in Melbourne. He was actively involved in the plein air movement in Europe and Australia.
Funds from the estate have been allocated to the University of Sydney to make possible a traveling scholarship for visual artists, the Fauvette Loureiro Memorial Artists Travel Scholarship. The Renee Fauvette Erdos bequest also funds international exchange scholarships for Sydney College of the Arts (SCA) students.

A bequest may include gifts of the residuary of an estate, a percentage of an estate, a specific sum or money or a particular asset such as real.
