Apply for a grant

Grants are awarded five times per year.  

The next deadline for applications is 23 January 2019.

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 trust is run entirely by volunteers, who include student fundraisers, and we depend on donations to provide our vital grants. We need support more than ever in the light of education budget cuts and fee increases.
