Further details of Bursaries and Grants
- All awards are assessed on the total family income of the applicant. Families whose family income does not exceed the single basic stipend of a URC minister will qualify for the highest awards. Families with income exceeding this figure may be offered reduced bursaries. When a bursary is awarded, a grant is made towards the initial fitting out cost and fees for public examinations are paid.
- Once a bursary is awarded the Trustees hope to continue its payment for the whole period of the child’s secondary education, but this can not be guaranteed.
- As the Foundation’s income is heavily dependent on its income from investments all bursary applications have to be renewed annually. The size of all bursaries is re-assessed each year.
- Applicants should satisfy the Trustees that all other sources of financial help to which they are entitled have been sought and obtained before making application to the Foundation.
- Applicants will be required to state the total family income on the application form. All such information is treated as confidential.
- Grants may be awarded towards the cost of uniform of a girl or boy on entry to any secondary education.
- Grants may be awarded to any women taking up further education for the first time.
- The Trustees have power to give help in other areas of need in the field of education.
