Studley College Trust provides financial support in the form of student bursaries for study and training activities in the land-based industries. The Studley Trust has to allocate its available funds within the Objects of its charitable status and therefore works to a number of guidelines and priorities in assessing the appropriate categories of qualifications and student endeavour that will be considered for support. All bursaries are awarded solely at the discretion of the Trustees. If you think that you could be considered for a Studley College Bursary, please check your circumstances against the Eligibility Criteria, summarised below, before making application.
Our primary aims are to.
• Help students gain their early qualifications in preference to those striving for higher academic achievements (Masters degrees and PhDs are therefore not usually supported by the Trust).
• Provide needed support for those with satisfactory performance throughout the course to its completion, but not in excess of three college years.
• Not to fund students on industrial experience periods of more than six weeks.
Bursaries can be accessed through a number of different routes and full details are available on the website by clicking on the link on the left hand side.
