The Faculty of English, University of Cambridge, is an international centre of excellence for the study, teaching and research in literature and literary criticism. The Faculty was founded in 1919 and has since been home to some of the most eminent critics, scholars, teachers and writers of English literature in the world.
Cambridge owes its world-leading excellence in research and teaching to the generosity of its supporters. Our history is synonymous with a history of far-sighted benefaction, and the same is as true today as it has ever been.
Established as a charity in 1920, the Evelyn Trust makes grants to support medical research and health and wellbeing projects in Cambridgeshire. The Trust is particularly interested in research projects that have the potential to deliver transformational change, such as demonstration or pilot projects.
