From the President: I am delighted to announce that the target of £2.5 million needed to fund The John Eatwell Fellowship has been met. The Fellowship will sustain and, indeed, enhance the supervision system at Queens'. In these troubled times the generosity of members and friends of the College is extraordinary, and a recognition of the quality of the educational experience at Queens'.
The Campaign total has been reached several weeks before the June 1 deadline. The College is very grateful to all of our more than 200 donors, whose generosity has enabled us to endow a full College Teaching Officer position at Queens’. This Fellowship will not be tied to a particular subject, allowing us to apportion teaching where it is most needed at any given time.
We were delighted to receive donations from alumni across all generations, including from two donors who matriculated as far back as 1945 and one from 2016. Support has come from the current members of the College, including Fellows, students and parents.
The Fellowship will be a fitting farewell to Lord Eatwell, who has been President of the College for 23 years, and will be, in the words of our Vice-President Prof Marie Edmonds, a "lasting legacy" in honour of his dedication and contribution to Queens’. It follows the tradition of creating Fellowships in the names of recent past Presidents: Sir Arthur Armitage and Derek Bowett in Law (Prof Richard Fentiman and Dr Federica Paddeu); Ron Oxburgh in Earth Sciences (Prof Marie Edmonds); and John Polkinghorne in Theology (Prof Richard Rex).
The inaugural John Eatwell Fellow will be announced in due course. If anyone still wishes to give a donation in honour of the President, please contact us by email.
