Salmon-Verburg Fund

The Henry Sweet Society no longer offers bursaries from the Salmon-Verburg Fund. These have been superseded by the equivalent Martin Burr Travel Bursary.

The Salmon-Verburg Memorial Fund was established with generous donations from Vivian Salmon and Adriaan Verburg to commemorate Paul Salmon (1921-1997), a founder-member of the Society, who also made the first English translation of Pieter Verburg’s (1905-1989) Taal en Fontionialiteit (originally published in Dutch in 1952).

The Salmon-Verburg Fund was used by the Society to grant one or two annual bursaries to assist younger scholars and other deserving candidates to attend the annual Colloquium of the Henry Sweet Society.

Past winners of the bursary will be listed here soon.
