Jane Eliza Procter Fellowships are scholarships supporting academic research at Princeton University. The Fellowships were endowed by William Cooper Procter in 1921-2, and named after his wife, Jane Eliza Johnston Procter (1864-1953).[1] The original terms of the Fellowships were for three awards, "each with an annual stipend of two thousand dollars, upon which each year two British and one French scholar will have the privilege of residence in the Princeton Graduate College, and of pursuing advanced study and investigation". The Fellowships were to be appointed annually on the recommendation of the University of Oxford, the University of Cambridge, and the École Normale Supérieure.[2]

The Fellowships are now for four visiting students per year, consisting of full tuition and stipend, for "young British and French scholars, one upon recommendation by the University of Cambridge, England; one upon recommendation by the University of Oxford, England; and two upon recommendation made by the École Normale Supérieure".[3] The fellowship funds can be used to support non-degree visiting pre-doctoral or doctoral scholars for one year.

Administration and trustees

In the United Kingdom, the Fellowships are administered by the "English Trustees" of the Henry Fund, a similar scholarship for study at Harvard and Yale.[4] The Trustees are currently:

Former Trustees include:
