Prospective applicants are also asked to note the following:

  • The Trustees will expect reports on the use of any funds granted and may appoint a Trustee or Advisor to liaise with the recipient
  • It is unusual for the Trustees to give individual grants for private study. Any bursary funding awarded will be through an institution, at their discretion
  • Trustees’ meetings are held quarterly - early December, March, June and September. Trustees will consider applications received by the Secretary by the middle of the preceding month
  • Applicants are asked not to append further information when sending their completed forms
