St. Catherine's College, Oxford
The Company has supported St Catherine's College and its predecessor, the St Catherine's Society, for well over a century, beginning in 1894 with the establishment of four Exhibitions of £25 p.a each for non-Collegiate students at Oxford. As with the establishment of similar Exhibitions at Cambridge, the idea was to help students who were unable to pay College fees, it represented a widening of our support for students at Oxford University which dates back to 1603, when the Leathersellers' Company made its first awards to poor scholars' at both Oxford and Cambridge.
Today, the Leathersellers' Company provides funding for a Tutorial Fellowship in Mathematics and four Graduate Scholarships for excellence in the fields of Engineering and Science.
