General Applications

If you would like help towards other educational costs not covered by any of our other grant schemes, such as educational courses, books and specialist clothing, we may be able to help. Applications submitted via this ‘general grant’ form are considered on a case by case basis and we will do our best to help you if we can. Please note that grants are not given for computers, uniform or travel costs.

Students who have received an A Level/College Equivalent Grant are not eligible to apply for equipment required for their course.

How To Apply

Click on the link below to download an application form. Fill it in online before printing. After printing, please check that it is filled in completely and accurately. Please pay particular attention to make sure your bank details are entered correctly as incorrect information may mean that, even if you are awarded a grant, you may not receive it. Make sure that the form is signed by the student, a parent/guardian (if the student is under 18), a relevant tutor/teacher. A school stamp must also be applied to the form in the relevant space if applicable. Applications will need to be accompanied by proof or payment for the item you are seeking help for (receipts/invoices marked and signed as paid are acceptable). When complete, send the form and proof of payment to the Clerk to the Trustees whose name and address is shown at the bottom of the form. Then sit back and wait to hear. Dates of our meetings and deadlines for applications are shown on our homepage. Please make sure that applications are received before the deadline as applications received after this time will not be accepted. All applicants will hear if they have been successful or not by the end of the month following the trustees’ meeting. Please do not chase for a response until after this date.
