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 (this may be waived for applicants showing evidence of strong support from the local meeting or another Quaker body). You should be in need of financial support to take the course.
The course should be offered at a reputable institution within the UK.
