Billionaire's £100m gift to Cambridge Uni
A hedge fund billionaire has donated £100m to Cambridge University. The donation from David Harding, via his foundation, is the biggest single gift made to a university in the UK by a British philanthropist. The money will fund postgraduate scholarships for more than 100 PhD students and be invested in attracting students from "under-represented groups". Vice-chancellor Prof Stephen J Toope said it was "extraordinarily generous".
