Gordon Edge Science and Technology Fund
Gordon Edge was a leading figure in the Cambridge technology sector and instrumental in the economic growth of the region, until his death in 2013.
Gordon was born in Lancashire and became the first person in his family to go on to higher education, before founding companies such as PA Technology and Sagentia (originally known as Scientific Generics).
Gordon’s family and friends have decided that establishing a fund to help disadvantaged students from North West England and North Wales study for an undergraduate degree in science or technology at the University of Cambridge is the best possible memorial to Gordon’s life and work. It will be directed at students from underprivileged backgrounds taking A-levels in science subjects, and is the University’s first endowed fund to support students from the North West of England.
How you can help
Mrs Nikki Edge has made a generous gift to establish the fund in honour of her late husband and, as it stands, a new student will receive maintenance support every four years. However, if we can raise a further £250,000, we would be able to greatly increase the number of students the Gordon Edge Science and Technology Fund is able to support.
