We make grants to Quaker members and attenders continuing their education as mature students.


These grants are particularly aimed at members and attenders gaining further or higher education to equip themselves to serve society and/or Quakers in Britain.

To apply you should be a mature student or graduate, either in membership of Britain Yearly Meeting or an attender of at least five years. You should be in need of financial support to take the course.

The course should be offered at a reputable institution within the UK.
