Scholarship Description: The Houblon-Norman Fund was established by the Bank of England in 1944 to mark the 250th Anniversary of the Bank’s foundation: Sir John Houblon was the first Governor and Montagu Norman was the then outgoing Governor of the Bank. George Fellowships were established within the fund in June 2003 in recognition of the lifelong achievements and service to the Bank of Sir Edward George, and in particular his role as the first chair of the Monetary Policy Committee. These Fellowships sit alongside the Houblon-Norman Fellowships and share the same objective. The Fund is administered by trustees, on the advice of an expert Committee. Houblon-Norman and George fellowships are awarded “to promote research into and disseminate knowledge and understanding of the working, interaction and function of financial business institutions in Great Britain and elsewhere and the economic conditions affecting them”.
