John Stewart Hepburn was the laird of Cloquhalzie, an estate in the parish of Trinity-Gask, Perthshire. He founded three bursaries for divinity students of the Church of Scotland. The Hepburn Bursaries were to be awarded on the basis of an examination which included a paper on the Gospels. In the case of one award a preference was to be given to Gaelic-speaking students. John Stewart Hepburn also founded the Hepburn Prize, an annual award of £20 for an essay by a student in the Faculty of Divinity.
