One scholarship award is available to a W&M undergraduate, for study at a top British university.
The Sullivan-Fildes Scholarship is named in honor of William & Mary’s 25th president, Timothy J. Sullivan, who served from 1992 to 2005, and Christopher Fildes, a financial journalist in London and a long-time benefactor of William & Mary. Sullivan-Fildes scholarship support is provided by President Sullivan, Mr. Fildes, the Drapers’ Company and William & Mary.
The Drapers’ Company dates back to the 13th century and was originally involved in the drapery trade, the buying and selling of woolen cloth within the city of London, England. Today the Company administers charitable trusts providing vital support to individuals and organizations each year. Mr. Fildes is a member of the Drapers’ Company. President Sullivan was given the Freedom of the Drapers' Company in London in November 1992 and was installed as a member of the Livery in July, 2003.
