Who can apply, when and how?

Grants have now been awarded for 2017/2018 academic Year

The Thomas Williams Educational Foundation (TWEF) is a grant-making trust which exists to assist young people under the age of 25 living in the Parish of Bere Regis to further their education.

Awards can be made to individuals whether they are in part-time or full-time education. In recent years the Foundation has assisted individuals on apprenticeships and in vocational training; at university doing all manner of degree courses; at agricultural college & with travelling expenses to 6th form colleges. Where the Trustees are aware of special cases of hardship they may weight awards towards such individuals.

Awards are also made to organisations, providing that they operate within the parish and promote education (including social and physical education) for persons under the age of 25 years old. Most of our parish organisations working with young people have benefitted in recent years.

Please note that the Foundation does not support gap year projects, second degrees or private tuition unless there are exceptional circumstances.

The Foundation will next be making awards in August 2018. 

Please note: The application form will be circulated to the trustees in exactly the format in which it is submitted so please treat it as a formal document. If your application is successful you may be asked to give evidence of your subsequent attendance on a course for which you apply for grant aid.
