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
Following in the footsteps of three pioneering fundraisers 21 years ago, a group of Ruth Hayman trustees and supporters will be doing a 140 mile sponsored walk along the Grand Union Canal from Birmingham to London. Give them a great send off in Birmingham on Sunday 6 May at the beginning of the Big Walk, join them at any point along the route or in triumph in London on Saturday 19 May. Let us know at email@example.com if you are planning to join the walk.
Once the walk has started follow our blog from the towpath https://bigruthhaymantrustwalk.wordpress.com/blog/
Or organise your own big walk
If the Grand Union Canal doesn't pass through your area, feel free to 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
To help us reach our goal of £15,000, please sponsor the walkers and get your friends and family to support your fundraising efforts. It's easy through https://mydonate.bt.com/events/ruthhaymantrustbigwalk or by cheque to Ruth Hayman Trust, POBox 17685, London N6 6WD.
