University Grants
If you are at university, studying at degree level or above, we may be able to help you with a grant. It doesn’t matter if you are studying part-time or full-time; continuing to live at home or studying away – we would be delighted to receive an application from you. These are our largest grants awarded and applicants for University grants are therefore not eligible to submit any other applications in the same educational year (September – August).

You can apply for a grant for each educational year you are studying at University.

You must already have started your course before you apply.

Please note that the Trustees very rarely award a grant for part-time courses where the applicant is in paid employment and the employer is paying the course fees.

Application Criteria
To qualify for a grant you must be aged under twenty-five at the start of your course
and fulfill any one of the following criteria

  • be a former pupil of Christ Church & St Peter’s CE Primary School, Mountsorrel
  • be resident in Mountsorrel, and for a minimum period of at least twelve months
  • have a parent/guardian who is resident in Mountsorrel, and has been for a minimum period of at least twelve months

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 you and your tutor and stamped by your university. When complete, send the form 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.
