Allan & Nesta Ferguson Postgraduate PhD Final Year Scholarship Opportunity

The Allan and Nesta Ferguson Charitable Trust was set up in 1979 by their son and daughter in law, John and Elnora. Its objectives have closely followed the interests of the Ferguson family in their commitment to education, peace and development in the Third World. In 1997, the substantial holding of Taylor and Francis shares became valuable when the publishing company was floated, and its subsequent merger with Informa further enhanced the value of the shares in the Trust. Over the last 15 years, more than £30 million has been distributed to a range of charities working in the UK and overseas.

For further details of who is eligible to apply, please visit the relevant website pages :
