AdminHistoryOrdination Candidates Exhibition Fund was a committee formed following an informal meeting in June 1873 with the stated aim;

'That it is desirable to assist eligible young men desirous of becoming clergymen but lacking the pecuniary means required to obtain the necessary education and for that purpose to raise what funds may be needed'.

A Committee was elected and were asked to report 'on what they have done and the rules upon which they have acted, with the intention of a system of rules being framed when experience has shown what are the best adapte to meet the neccessities of the case'.

At the first formal meeting, held on the 9 July 1873, more formal rules were adopted (see OCEF/M/1).
