Established through donations by Professor William Charles Kernot, first professor of Engineering at Melbourne, in 1887, in recognition of the aid he had received through scholarships as a student.

Later bequests from Dr Rod Esdaile (BSc 1965), and his wife, Dr Susan Esdaile, were added to the fund in 2009 and 2013.

Rod Esdaile was an expert in titanium and fibre optics. Susan Esdaile was one of the first occupational therapists in Australia to obtain a PhD.
