Apply for a further education grant to support your studies
Are you starting a new education or training course in September, but worried about finding the money to pay for it? We might be able to help. Applications for the Tower Hamlets and Canary Wharf Trust Fund are open until 30 July 2021.
The fund provides financial grants of up £6,600, depending on your course and personal financial situation, to help with the cost of further and higher education courses.
Who is eligible to apply?
• Have finished school and not be studying GCSEs or A Levels
• Live in Tower Hamlets and have been resident in the borough for 3 years. (exceptions may be made for those who have recently been granted refugee status)
• Anyone with limitations on their ability to remain in the UK will normally not be eligible to apply
In general, the trust will not fund students who can obtain financial assistance from central or local government through schemes like Student Finance or the Mayor’s Education Award.
