The Herbert Old Wellingtonian Trust
The Herbert Old Wellingtonian Trust was set established in 1955 under the Will of Lt. Col. G.M. Herbert D.S.O. (A 1894), who left the residue of his estate in memory of his three nephews, all OWs, who gave their lives in the 1939-1945 war. He expressed the wish that the Society should use the money for the benefit of the children of OWs. The Trust was therefore established as a charitable trust for help, in cases of hardship, with the education of the sons and daughters of OWs, whether at Wellington or at another school.
The Melissa Morgan Memorial Fund
The Melissa Morgan Memorial Fund, set up in 2004, is available to Old Wellingtonian girls, under the age of 25, to help fund, by means of grant, structured, enterprising and original Gap Year activity, in the UK or overseas, before or after University.
The Wilfred House Language Scholarship
The Wilfred House Language Scholarship has specific and academic focus: to enable modern linguists to improve their French, German or Spanish through spending several weeks living and studying. Wilfred (Harry) House was Master of Wellington College from 1941 to 1956. Before coming to Wellington, he was a Fellow and Lecturer in Modern Languages at Queen’s College, Oxford, where from 1924 to 1939 he also administered a Foundation which financed four undergraduates each year to spend their vacation abroad to master a country’s language and pick up some of its culture.
The Bevir Memorial Fund
The J L Bevir Memorial Fund was set up in 1928 in memory of the man who was at Wellington as both boy and lifetime teacher and also was co-founder of the OW Society and the Wellington Year Book. The Fund is administered by the OW Charitable Trust.
The Trustees award grants to suitable applicants to assist them with the cost of projects overseas that are socially desirable and character developing. They are intended to supplement money raised by self-help and sponsors, and are primarily for the post-school gap year, but medical students doing an elective during training and other older ‘young’ OWs can apply.
