Grants given by the Trust to Young People

In his Will, the Revd Nicholas Chamberlaine provided for the setting up of the Almshouses, the foundation of two schools, and the provision of clothing and apprenticeships for young boys. Today's Trustees are equally keen to ensure that the young people (both boys and girls) of the area (the former Bedworth Urban District Council which includes Bulkington and parts of Exhall and Keresley) should have a good start in life. To this end they offer grants to young people starting a first degree. From September 2015 grants are £750 p.a. for a three year degree course. The Trustees would also like to help young people who are beginning an apprenticeship or other vocational qualification, perhaps with the cost of tools or equipment. Grants are occasionally made to individuals for other educational purposes.
