We are a registered charity which offers grants to people who have links with North Devon, and who wish to achieve a better life through further education.

Primarily we assist people whose circumstances are financially difficult.

  • To help train unemployed men and women so that they will be able to find a job
  • To train those already in a job to do their job better
  • To enable individuals to embark on a course of study which will help  them gain promotion at work
  • The Foundation will also consider awarding to first degree applicants providing the studies clearly lead to a viable career/vocational path
  • It is rare that grants are made in excess of £500

We prefer to receive application forms online as this will greatly speed consideration of your application. However, if you are unable to do this please write to us at the address on our contact page requesting an application form which must be completed in full.
