Sally Connally Hardie Visiting Researcher Bursary

Sally Connally Hardie was an environmental campaigner and philanthropist and former member of the Court of the University of St Andrews. Born in Atlanta Georgia in 1926 she was a direct descendent of one of the first settlers to obtain land in the city. Her great-grandfather was governor of Georgia during the American civil war. She originally came to Scotland to take a course at St Andrews where she met her husband Donald Hardie who after her death in 2010 established a bequest to enable overseas academics to spend a period of up to 2 months working with researchers at the Scottish Oceans Institute.

The bequest commemorates Sally Connally Hardie's strong interest in the marine environment and her unfailing support of the research carried out at the Gatty Marine Laboratory.
