Applications for financial bursaries (within the range £500 to a maximum of £2,000) are accepted from UK citizens to support a recognised educational course in the UK. In assessing applications, the Trustees wish to identify and assist particularly gifted or talented individuals who are struggling to support themselves financially through university or college. To be eligible for support, applicants must have a personal or family link with commerce (either the applicant, the applicant’s parents or grandparents must have worked in or owned a commercial business. This does not include professional people i.e. doctors, accountants, architects, solicitors, etc.).
If you are applying for support and are studying at one of the below eight institutes please contact your school directly, as the Foundation offers separate schemes with them:
University College London, University of Nottingham, University of Liverpool, Peninsula College of Medicine & Dentistry, Royal College of Music, Royal Academy of Music, Guildhall School of Music and Drama and The Purcell School.

Gilchrist Educational Trust – Study Grants to Individuals

Applications are considered from students who have made proper provision to fund a degree or higher education course but find themselves facing unexpected financial difficulties which may prevent completion of it. Applicants will normally be in the last year of the course. Applicants must be full-time students at a British University. Those seeking funds to enable them to take up a place on a course are not eligible for consideration.
