The Catherine Mackichan Trust aims to offer financial assistance to students of history or archaeology.
The trust was set up in 1990 in the memory of Catherine Mackichan. She had a deep interest in Scottish history and was studying for a history degree at St. Andrews University when diagnosed as suffering from a malignant melanoma. Throughout her illness she continued with her studies at Newcastle University and was awarded an aegrotat degree at her bedside the day before she died.
