Marion Redfearn Trust at the

University of Surrey

Marion Redfearn studied Chemistry at Cambridge and followed with a career in the Chemistry Department at the Central Electricity Research Laboratories (CERL) in Leatherhead, Surrey. After a lifelong career in a profession dominated by men Mrs Redfearn made a bequest to the University for a Trust to allow female postgraduate students to gain a postgraduate qualification involving Physics, Chemistry, Maths or Electrical Engineering.

The Marion Redfearn Trust provides funding for new or existing postgraduate research students that satisfy the eligibility criteria:

  • be female and born in the UK
  • have at least one degree gained at a university in the UK
  • have demonstrated academic merit in the past and, in the opinion of the reviewing committee, be capable of demonstrating academic merit in the future
  • be enrolled or accepted on a full-time postgraduate research programme in Physics, Chemistry, Maths, Electronic Engineering or Sound Recording at the University of Surrey

Scholarships cover tuition fees and an annual stipend for three years in the first instance.

The 2014 competition is now open. The deadline for submission of applications is Friday 11th April 2014. Please contact Lynn Boniface for further information about the application process.
