Durham University

College of St Hild and St Bede

Trusts & Scholarships

Through the generosity of Alumni, in particular, the College is extremely fortunate in having extensive funds to distribute to its students annually in order to support them in academic and social activities that contribute to the overall “Student Experience”.

Students who are interested in any of these funds should contact The Principal or Julie Blake by phone 0191 33 48531 or by email julie.blake@durham.ac.uk for further information.

The College is able to offer scholarships to post-graduate students for their studies including:


The Caedmon/Ceolfrid Trust: Provides financial support to members of the College in various ways. Amongst other things, the Trust supports students in certain extra-curricular activities and postgraduate research, and has historically funded the marquee at College Day. It also usually provides up to eight annual College Choral Scholarships.

The St Hild and St Bede Trust: A diocesan Trust, independent of College that historically provides funding for the College Chaplain; annual Theology Scholarships, Organ Scholarships and a Director and Assistant Director of Music.

The John (Jack) Simpson Greenwell Memorial Fund: Established from the estate of a former student at Bede College to provide students with bursaries to support their academic work; specifically projects, dissertations, fieldwork and necessary overseas visits.

The Hannah Barrett Memorial Fund (in Memory of Hannah Barrett): This Memorial Fund was specifically created to assist Hild Bede Modern Foreign Language students going into their third year of study (year abroad). This Fund was established in 2013 in memory of Hannah, a former Hild Bede student. Contributions to the Fund have been made by family, friends and peers of Hannah’s to commemorate her life.
