Anice Alexander Fund

The Anice Alexander fund originates from the 1980s when Anice, a member of the Society, bequeathed a large sum of money to the Society to support women in product design.

In more recent years a bursary from the fund was awarded to a student to support her study of ‘inclusive design’ and also to fund the purchase of study books and research material. In 2007 the funds were allocated to carry out research into gender issues in the design profession and to support an event ‘Women in Design’ hosted at the Houses of Parliament.

Between 2010 and 2013 the fund awarded a bursary to support a student undertaking a collaborative PhD between the Society and the University of Brighton which explored the development of the profession of design.

The Society welcomes suggestions and applications for awards under this fund.
