Each year we make a small number of grants to help 16-21 Year olds who live in Rugby, Warwickshire, to take Gap Years or see the World on short breaks. We have a special prize for a self planned project.

Our Mission

To help young people in Rugby meet the costs of individually planned Travel Projects or similar individual initiatives which have an educational, vocational and sometimes charitable emphasis.

Our Vision

We have around £3000 to give out. Our David Lindop award is usually made for between £500 and £1000. Our Edyvean Walker Travelling scholarships are made for £100-£350.
