15th October - We are now accepting applications for scholarships from students wishing to start university in Autumn 2021.  More details can be found here.

The Lillingstone Trust is a small charity operating in the local area of Buckingham.  The charity has been operating since 2013, with the principal aim of encouraging young adults from lower income backgrounds who are deterred by financial constraints from exploiting their potential , to continue into higher education. 

“I feel the uses of my scholarship have been crucial to me securing two amazing opportunities, the first was the industrial placement year for 2018/19.  Secondly, I have already been able to secure an exciting laboratory-based research project into a plant based anti-cancer molecule for my third-year dissertation.  I am immensely excited to be able to start my third-year project and I believe my scholarship will be integral to continuing my success.”

 “My dissertation for my BSc is based on geological mapping work…which is carried out during the summer break between years 2&3.  A place of significant geological interest needed to be selected and thanks to the Lillingstone Trust scholarship I was fortunate enough to be able to travel to Brazil to do this.”

See our scholarship page for details of how to apply.

The charity also has a special interest in promoting education in the area of science to all ages.  The Charity has sponsored the Lillingstone Trust Community Laboratory and supports the work of the Outreach team of the Royal Latin School.  Attend one of the exciting lectures.
