Grants are awarded five times per year.
The next deadline for applications is 5 June 2018.
To apply, read our application guidelines then complete an application form and submit an academic reference.
Because of such high demand for our grants, we are not accepting applications for any university fees unless the course leads directly to employment. We never give grants for PhDs.
The Big Walk for the Ruth Hayman Trust
Congratulations to the amazing walkers who have now completed the walk along the Grand Union Canal from Birmingham to London - they reckon it was 145, not 140 miles. Gomathi Panchapagesan, Elizabeth Knight, Mary Simpson, Paul Hoggart walked the whole way in just under 2 weeks, Sally Staples and Jane Wilson walked half way each and Judith Nicholson walked 65 miles in between teaching duties. Read their blog from the towpath https://bigruthhaymantrustwalk.wordpress.com/blog/
The prize for the greatest achievement goes to Stephanie Jones who sped along the whole way in a week!
Thank you to all those who have donated very generously so far. We are still some way off our target of £15,000 and there is still time till August to donate to the Big Walk.
Or organise your own walk along another canal or wherever you fancy. If you're a teacher, invite your students along for a fantastic day out, walking and talking and raising money for a great cause. See instructions for walk organisers or email email@example.com. For the risk assessment, click here.
