The Douglas Smith Scholarship to Cambridge University

Douglas Smith was appointed Cricket Professional at St Andrew’s College in 1904 and he continued coaching College cricketers until his death in 1949. A few years before his death he made arrangements for a bequest to fund a scholarship to Cambridge University along the same lines as the Rhodes Scholarship. This scholarship is only awarded approximately once every five years.
