In a ceremony in the Chapel on 19 January the Provost admitted Mark Pigott as a Fellow Commoner of the College. Mr. Pigott is Chairman and CEO of PACCAR, a multinational technology company based in Seattle. Last year he established an innovative fund to support two scholarships a year for members of the College.
The Pigott Scholarships will support graduate students at King's who are studying for Masters degrees and were previously undergraduates at the College. The first scholarships will be awarded this year.
Details of the scholarships were announced in a previous news item.
