The Ian Gregor Scholarship

Home tuition fees, plus £500

The Ian Gregor Scholarship pays home fees (or the equivalent amount to international applicants) and a £500 bursary for one year’s full-time study

Ian Gregor was a founding member of the School of English from 1964. He became Professor of Modern English Literature in 1969 and as such played a leading role in developing graduate studies, particularly the taught MA programme. He is best known for two co-authored works, a study of William Golding written with another Kent colleague Mark Kinkead-Weekes, and a study of modern fiction, The Moral and the Story, written with Brian Nicholls, together with a monograph on Thomas Hardy, The Great Web. His reputation for collegiality was a by-word and is best represented in his edited collection, Reading the Victorian Novel: Detail into Form, all of whose contributors came from Kent’s School of English. Ian retired in 1988 and died in 1995. The Gregor Scholarship was established in his memory and is sustained through the generosity of his brother Malcolm Gregor.
