A generous donation by the Marquis de Amodio provides for up to six Scholarships every year. The Scholarships were set up in 1985 to create further links between Switzerland and Great Britain by allowing Swiss students to pursue fully funded graduate studies at the University of Oxford as members of Lincoln College. Each year, up to four Berrow Foundation Scholarships and two Berrow Foundation Lord Florey Scholarships are awarded. The Scholarships are tenable for up to three years and cover university tuition fees as well as a generous living allowance.
In the words of the Marquis:
Since October 2014, the Berrow Foundation has had its name engraved on a new building on the grounds of Lincoln College, the Berrow Foundation Building.
