The Elizabeth Kolb Memorial Trust

The trust was created in 1958 by the will of Louis Michael Kolb, 'in memory of my truly beloved and unforgettable wife Elizabeth', to give 'grants-in-aid to assist worthy girls of the Roman Catholic faith born in the United Kingdom engaged in any particular course of studies and in their living expenses at the Cambridge University, England.' Applicants must be practising Roman Catholics who were born in the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland, and must be engaged in any course of studies at the University of Cambridge. Under the terms of the will, preference is to be given to 'Roman Catholic girls whose parents or either of them were born in the Jewish faith whether or not such parents shall have remained in the Jewish faith.' The great majority of grants are made at the end of the Easter Term (so that applications can be considered together). Applications for the year 2006-07 must be received by 8 June 2007, although applications can be considered outside these dates in exceptional circumstances of hardship.
