Scholarship fund established in memory of Monique Heald

Monique Heald

20 November 2008

Following the recent sudden death of Monique Heald, Information Resources Manager at the Clore Laboratory and wife of Professor Mike Cawthorne, a scholarship fund has been established in her name to provide scholarship for research students in science.

Monique was an excellent scientist, who was prevented from undertaking PhD studies as a young scientist for financial reasons. At that time, married women were discriminated against financially, with the State assuming that they would be supported by their husband.

Monique undertook primary research in industry and academia, worked in scientific publishing, including being managing editor of several peer-reviewed journals, before joining the Clore Laboratory, where, among other things, she organised several national and international conferences.

Donations to the scholarship fund can be made by cheque payable to the University of Buckingham and sent to Sarah Rush, Yeomanry House, University of Buckingham, Buckingham MK18 1EG. Please use the Gift Aid Form1 (92 KB) if you are a UK taxpayer.
