About us

The Foundation supports its programme of academic research through the making of grants*, scholarships and bursaries. It seeks where possible to place the results of such work in the public domain through journals, seminars, presentations and the internet. The Foundation and its Programmes are supported by advisors who are academically or professionally eminent in their own fields internationally.

The Foundation was incorporated in January 2012, and is registered as a charity in England and Wales.

*See our flagship programme. We have yet to put a programme of scholarships and bursaries in place, and our current policy is confined to making grants to institutions rather than individuals.
