Latest News  14th August 2019 - We are now accepting scholarship applications for Autumn 2020.  Details of our scholarship scheme can be found on the Apply page.

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 am coming to the end of my three years at university and I wanted to take the time to extend a true thank you. 

 Going to university was always going to be financially challenging coming from my background, but with your help I have at no point felt like I couldn't do anything. From simple things like being able to afford kit and fees for rugby, to more important ones like having enough money to pay my house deposit.  This year, I've been travelling up and down the country to apply and interview for jobs, all costs that would have been much harder to bear had it not been for the Trust. I've now been lucky enough to be extended an offer from my top choice firm too!  

 The work the Trust does is invaluable, enabling young people like myself to go to university worry free. So thank you, to all of the Trustees, for allowing me to enjoy university to the fullest extent and helping me to set up my future."

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.
