The College Fellowship was established by the College’s founder, the Revd Dr Stephen Moulsdale, in the early 1930s, when he oversaw the endowment of two fellowships. After a long hiatus, the Fellowship has grown considerably in the 21st century. The College is managed by Fellows, but the primary aim of the Fellowship is the support the academic research community in the College.
