The Fielder Scholarship was established by the Will of the late Mrs Laura Mary Fielder in 1908, when she left £3,000 to King’s College for students “with a proficiency in the ancient Greek language”. Mrs Fielder’s connection to the College is unknown, but she felt strongly that an understanding of Greek was necessary for study of Holy Scripture, and wished to preserve scholarship in the language.
Revised in 2020, this award is now a graduate Studentship which offers a grant of up to £12,000 for a MPhil student in Classics, who wishes to include Ancient, Classical, or Koine Greek in their studies. Students of History or Theology with the same interest and ability in Greek may be considered if no candidate in Classics presents themselves in any given year.
