The Rowan and Jane Williams Bursary Fund

The Rowan and Jane Williams Bursary Fund

Supporting the Williams Bursary Fund from the USA.

In 2020 Magdalene College launched The Rowan and Jane Williams Bursary Fund in honour of the former Master Dr Rowan Williams and Lady Williams and to mark their wonderful contribution to the College.

The fund will endow, in perpetuity, up to three annual bursaries for Magdalene undergraduates up to a value of £5,000 per annum per bursary.

Dr and Lady Williams passionately believe no one should be put off or prevented from fulfilling their academic potential because of financial constraints. The College has long been committed to the principle of ‘needs blind admission’ and that no suitably qualified UK student should be deterred from applying to Magdalene due to financial concerns.

In recognition of Dr Williams’s home country and the College’s close connection with Wales given our continued outreach and access work in collaboration with the Welsh Government Seren Network, one of the bursaries will be awarded to a student from Wales where possible.

All gifts from Members who have not previously made a charitable gift to Magdalene or the University will be eligible for matched funding from the Harding Challenge Fund.
