The F. & E. Bauer Foundation provides $4,000.00, to be awarded annually to any visiting dermatologist or visiting professor invited to the Annual Scientific Meeting or to a State function or seminar of College. Dr Fred Bauer was a Fellow of the Australasian College of Dermatologists who wished to donate funds for a suite of awards. He had a specific interest in research, particularly in immunology.
The grant is awarded, after recommendation by the Board of Directors, to a visiting dermatologist or visiting speaker who has worked diligently during the meeting and whose teaching and contribution has been considered outstanding and of considerable help to College. If the recipient of the prize has read any papers, they must offer one of them to the Editor of the Australasian Journal of Dermatology.
This grant can also be used to assist a visiting dermatologist invited to one particular State, to go interstate for teaching purposes. This money can be available for travel and accommodation to each State Faculty, as far as possible in rotation. This is dependent on the State Faculty matching the grant equally.
