Gordon Edge Cambridge Scholarship established for science and technology undergraduates

A new scholarship has been established to help disadvantaged young people from Northwest England and North Wales study for an undergraduate degree in science or technology at the University of Cambridge thanks to the generosity of Mrs Nikki Edge, widow of the late Gordon Edge.

Gordon Edge was one of the leading figures in the Cambridge technology sector, and founder of PA Technology and Scientific Generics (now known as Sagentia).

Gordon, who died five years ago, was born in Lancashire. Gordon’s friends and family have decided that establishing a fund, the Gordon Edge Science and Technology Fund, to provide scholarships for bright students studying science and technology at the University of Cambridge would be the best possible memorial to his life and work.

The Gordon Edge Cambridge Scholarship is designed to support disadvantaged undergraduate students from Lancashire, Manchester, Liverpool, Anglesey, Gwynedd, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire or Wrexham undertaking a science or technology course (excluding geography, medicine and veterinary science) at the University of Cambridge. It will be administered by the Cambridge Trust.
