The Brewer-Loughman Award 


The University of Oxford Department of Earth Sciences is delighted to announce the establishment of The Brewer-Loughman Awards for final year Earth Sciences Undergraduates. The Brewer-Loughman Awards have been made possible through a generous gift from Jonathan Brewer and David Loughman, both Oxford Geology Department undergraduates from 1974-1977. The gift is in memory of their fathers, Douglas Brewer (1925 – 2018) and Brian Loughman (1925 – 2019). Douglas Brewer was an undergraduate, and completed his DPhil, at Pembroke College, Oxford. He went on to become a Professor of Experimental Physics and later Emeritus Professor at the University of Sussex. Brian Loughman, a graduate of Aberystwyth University, completed his DPhil at Downing College Cambridge, before becoming a Fellow in Plant Sciences and later Emeritus Fellow at University College, Oxford.

For almost 1,000 years, Oxford University has been recognized and celebrated across the world as a jewel in the crown of world learning. Just as our past inspires us, it also demands that we achieve greater heights in the centuries to come. Inspired philanthropy has always played an important role in this University by providing resources for great scholarship, architectural jewels such the Bodleian Library and the Radcliffe Camera, or the great engineering, medical and scientific laboratories of the 20th century. By giving to Americans for Oxford, you are continuing this tradition of excellence. Thank you.
