Mansfield Memorial Fund Medical Scholarship Program 2019
We are very pleased to inform interested persons that applications are now open for the Mansfield Memorial Fund Medical Scholarship Program 2019.This award is an amalgamation of two awards: the Mansfield Aders Scholarship and the Avebury Memorial Fund. Dr Walter Mansfield Aders, Economic Biologist to the Government of Zanzibar, died in 1934. A bequest to the School endowed a scholarship in medical entomology and parasitology, which was known as the ‘Mansfield Aders Scholarship’.
The Avebury Memorial Fund was a subscription fundraised to provide a memorial for Lord Avebury (1834-1913) who was the Vice Chancellor of the University of London from 1872 to 1880. The award was used for scholarships or research, especially in entomology.
