The Frederica Lord University Scholarship was set up by Christopher Fildes in memory of his wife, Frederica Lord. Mr Fildes is an occasional adviser to the Trust and was for nine years a Trustee. The scholarship is tenable for three years, has an annual value of £1,000 (for a maximum of three years of the student’s time at university), and will support the holder in pursuing a recognised course of academic study (at one of the universities as specified by the founder), and in making the most of university life and contributing to it.
The terms of the Scholarship reflect the commitment of the benefactor to ensuring that the full benefit of the higher education experience remains accessible to Trust students from a range of circumstances. The funding is intended to help students benefit from the broader range of university experience – travel, societies, and other wider intellectual pursuits.
