Following Holocaust Memorial Day on the 29 January, Sidney is grateful for the support offered by a long-standing donor to the College for a new award, the Oliver Cromwell Prize for Hebrew Studies.
Donated by the Alan and Sheila Diamond Charitable Trust, the prize is named in recognition of Oliver Cromwell’s membership of Sidney and his association with the re-admission of Jews to England in 1656 (following their expulsion in 1290 during the reign of King Edward I). The Alan and Sheila Diamond Charitable Trust also supports academic awards at Sidney for English, History, Law, Maths, Engineering, and Medicine.
The Oliver Cromwell Prize for Hebrew Studies will be administered by the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies and will be open to all Cambridge Hebrew Studies students.
