We can help!
If you qualify we could provide support towards the cost of being in higher education.
Sporting OR artistic funding
If you are skilled in the arts or sport but need help to achieve your potential the Trust has the option to award a grant to help with things such as the cost of equipment, fees, specialist training or materials.
Special Access funding
