In January 2001 Cardiff University received a gift of £100,000 from Professor Henriques (1914 – 2008), a former member of staff in the Department of History and Welsh History, University College Cardiff.

The monies have been used to establish the Professor URQ Henriques Scholarship Fund to support postgraduate students. Now in its 16th year, the legacy rotates annually between the Schools of English, Communication and Philosophy, History, Archaeology and Religion, and Modern Languages.
