2018-19 Mansfield Aders & Avebury Memorial Fund

This award is an amalgamation of two awards: the Mansfield Aders Scholarship and The Avebury Memorial Fund. Dr Walter Mansfield Aders, Economic Biologist to the Government of Zanzibar, died in 1934. A bequest to the School endowed a scholarship in medical entomology and parasitology, which was known as the ‘Mansfield Aders Scholarship’.  The Avebury Memorial Fund was a subscription fund raised to provide a memorial for Lord Avebury (1834-1913) who was the Vice Chancellor of the University of London from 1872 to 1880. The award was used for scholarships or research, especially in entomology.
