In addition to raising much-needed funds for projects through the Annual Fund, such as outreach, student financial support and unrestricted donations for general purposes, LMH is working on a number of other exciting projects.
It is our hope that the projects listed below are of interest and we invite you to contact the Development Director, Richard Hunt, if you have any questions or should like to discuss your gift.
Refugee Academic Futures
The Refugee Academic Futures scheme will offer financial support to pursue graduate study at Oxford to students who are refugees or other people with lived experience of displacement.
The Clive Holmes Fellowship in History
We want to recruit a more senior College Fellow for 5 years. It is our honour to name this position in recognition of Clive Holmes and his dedication to LMH and History more broadly over his distinguished career. We hope those who benefited from Clive’s time and experience will support this campaign and enable his legacy to live on through this post.
The Chris Dobson Research Fund for Chemists and Biochemists
Our aim is to raise at least £350,000 to support a generation of Junior Research Fellows and DPhil students at LMH to focus on researching the areas which Chris was so passionate about, namely biomolecular NMR spectroscopy; the structure, function and dynamics of proteins; the process of protein folding and misfolding and their role in diseases. Research in these fields is largely undertaken in Oxford by academics working in the Chemistry and Biochemistry Departments.
Gifts towards the LMH Library will enable us to increase the investment necessary to ensure that our provision is equal to that for students in other colleges.
Ann Kennedy Graduate Scholarship in Law
We have launched a Graduate Scholarship in Law, named after former Law Tutor and Fellow, Ann Kennedy to raise an initial £200,000 towards an endowment to fund a graduate scholarship of up to £7,000 per annum.
