Each year we make a small number of travel grants for 16-21 year olds who live in Rugby. The grants are intended as a contribution to Gap Year funding or for 2-3 week journeys. Our David Lindop Award is broader. We make a sizeable grant to an individual who is organising an educational or charitable project. Our 2022 process is now open and will continue until after the Easter holidays. Please apply or ask a question. Visit our contact page.
We have around £3000 to give out annually. Our David Lindop award is usually made for between £500 and £1000. Our Edyvean Walker Travelling scholarships are usually offered for £100-£350. Please read about the history of both funds to learn more and see whether your plans may qualify.
