Founded in 1919 by the businessman and philanthropist Sir Richard Stapley (1843-1920), the Sir Richard Stapley Educational Trust supports the work of mature students of proven academic merit, and in financial need, who are pursuing further degree qualifications at an institution in the UK. Open to students from all countries, applicants must be resident in the UK at the time of applying, as well as during their course of study.
The Trust funds students pursuing degrees in medicine, dentistry and veterinary studies and postgraduate degree students from all fields of study. Applications are welcome from students beginning their first year of study, as well as from those already embarked on their degree course.
The deadline for submissions is either 31st March 2018, or the first 300 completed applications received, whichever comes first.
Grants are normally from £400 to £1,200 in value. They are intended to cover the shortfall incurred by educational and subsistence expenses upon payment of tuition fees.
In order to be eligible to apply for a grant, you must be:
a) over the age of 24 on 01 October of the proposed year of study
b) either accepted on, or applying for a place on a degree course in medicine, dentistry or veterinary studies taken as a second degree, or accepted on, or applying for a full- or part-time place on a Masters or Doctoral degree programme in any discipline, at a UK university
c) already resident in the UK at the time of application, and resident in the UK during the course of study.
d) be facing demonstrable financial need in the academic year for which funding is applied (details about how this is calculated are in the application pack).
NB: if you are a postgraduate student, or applying for a place on a postgraduate degree course, you must hold a first- or strong 2.1 honours degree (at least 65%) from a UK institution (or its equivalent from a non-UK institution) or hold a Masters degree from a UK institution, or its overseas equivalent.
We do accept applications from final year BA/BSc students, but the awarding of any grant is contingent upon the outcome of their first degree.
