(a) to provide support to UK-resident undergraduate students, admitted to the University from disadvantaged backgrounds, in their studies at the University, particularly (but without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing) in the fields of science, technology, mathematics and engineering;

5. The University shall have power to pay out of the income of the Fund all reasonable costs of and incidental to the management and administration of the Fund.

6. The University may exercise any of its corporate powers in the management and administration of the Fund insofar as those powers are not inconsistent with these Regulations.
