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 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 discretionary grants to young people starting a first degree (up to four years) or where there is an emphasis on pastoral care and service to the community, for a second degree.  Grants are currently £750 per annum.

The Trustees 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.

Whilst the Trust will endeavour to award full grants this may be affected by income that the Trust receives or the detail within the application for the grant.  Grants are discretionary and can be subject to change.
