Apply for a Scholarship
The Lillingstone Trust Scholarships

The Lillingstone Trust offers scholarships to encourage pupils from lower income backgrounds who are deterred by financial constraints from exploiting their potential by continuing into higher education.  
Scholarships will be awarded mainly, but not exclusively, to pupils applying to research based universities to study science, technology, mathematics or engineering.  

Scholarships will have maximum value of £4,000, with payments spread over the first three years of the degree course. The first year’s award will be £1,500 to assist with the purchase of required equipment and books. To receive subsequent yearly grants applicants will need to provide evidence to the Trustees of their successful academic progress and to confirm that they have a continuing need for support.

Any one attending schools in North Buckinghamshire, Northampton Town or South Northamptonshire may apply for a scholarship.

The Trust has also set aside a small fund to assist those pupils requiring assistance with the costs of travel to attend interviews at universities, please ask your Head of 6th Form if you think you require this support.

Application forms can be found at the bottom of this webpage

Please complete your application clearly and return it to your Head of 6th Form or if you have received the form direct from The Lillingstone Trust, please return to:

What our Scholars say:

“The Lillingstone Trust Scholarship has benefited me hugely throughout my first two years at Medical School.  The financial help has alleviated much of the financial burden many students face and enabled me to focus on my studies.”

“The past year has been tight financially, we were hit with unexpected utility bills that I would have had no other way to pay for had it not been for my scholarship.”

“The last instalment of this scholarship will be highly beneficial in allowing me to continue to support myself financially and academically so that I can reach my full potential during university.”

“I am grateful to have received the Lillingstone Trust Scholarship last year as it enabled me to continue to be a member of the ladies first team in badminton, paying for my annual membership, transport to and from training and for entry and transport to tournaments.”

“The scholarship has contributed to living costs for the coming year by allowing me to pay the deposit on my student house and first month’s rent, which were things I didn’t account for in my initial budget for the year.”

“I have been able to use some of the scholarship to help me to purchase a road bike, which allowed me to continue in the triathlon club.”

“During the second semester my laptop broke.  It would not have been possible to replace it without the money I received from The Lillingstone Trust.”

The Trustees will carefully consider all applications, the Scholarships are granted on a discretionary basis and the Trustees will not enter into any correspondence or discussion about their decisions. In considering applications, the Trustees will ask the School to provide an academic/personal assessment of each applicant.

All information you provide will be received in confidence by the Trustees who may discuss your application with the School. 

Guidance on completion of your application may be provided by your Head of 6th Form.
