Generous donation endows further scholarships in Practical Ethics at St Cross

We are delighted to accept a very generous donation from the Uehiro Foundation in Tokyo, with which the College has a longstanding warm and fruitful relationship. The gift is made as a token of deep appreciation for the distinguished leadership in the field of Practical Ethics of Professor Julian Savulescu, Fellow of St Cross and the founding Chair of the Uehiro Centre in the Faculty of Philosophy of the University. The Foundation recognises the key role played by St Cross College in providing a generous and reliable platform for the Foundation’s support for the University of Oxford since 1999. The donors also  expressed their gratitude to Professor Tony Hope, Emeritus Fellow of St Cross, who has played a key role in supporting the Foundation’s work. The donation will endow in perpetuity scholarships for students from a number of disciplines on masters and doctoral programmes in Practical Ethics, together with supporting activities.

 We are exceedingly grateful to our Japanese friends.
