Griff Caldwell Bursary
La Société Guernesiaise has established a bursary in memory of Frank Griffiths Caldwell, who was known to all as Griff. Griff Caldwell was born in Guernsey in 1921. After an army career in which he reached the rank of Major-General he retired to Guernsey. He was involved in the running of La Société Guernesiaise and served as president of the society for three years.

He helped the society to acquire several nature reserves, settingup La Claire Mare NR, and initiated various projects to enhance nature conservation in the island. He died in 2014. The bursary is a single payment of £1,000 for a student from the Bailiwick of Guernsey taking a higher education course.

The bursary is intended to support a student who is studying a subject related to Griff Caldwell’s interest in fauna, flora and the natural environment, and their conservation.

La Société Guernesiaise was founded in 1882 to encourage the study of the history, natural history, geography and geology of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, the conservation of the Bailiwick’s natural environment and the preservation of its historic buildings and monuments. 125 years later, this is as much true as it was then and the Société is the second largest landowner after the States of Guernsey and is very active in promoting, conserving and studying all aspects of island life.
