The Trust awards grants of £300 to students embarking on a gap year. No more than 233 such grants will be made each year on a first come first served basis.

The Trust will only provide one grant to a student embarking on an overseas gap year and therefore if you have received a grant previously you are not eligible to apply again, even if you require funding towards the cost of another gap year.

The Trust is unable to provide funding to individuals so that you must be travelling with a recognised organisation in order to be eligible for a grant.

Please read the full information on applying for help with your gap year
