The Allan & Nesta Ferguson Charitable Trust was set up to promote interests in education, international friendship and understanding, and the promotion of world peace and development.
Grants are given to charitable organisations involved in projects supporting the interests of the Trust, and also to individual students who are undertaking a gap year or studying for a PhD.
When to Apply:
Applications for either a gap year or PhD grant should be made as soon as possible, either before the beginning of the proposed gap year or at least three months before the start of the final year of a PhD course.
Application Procedure: The Trust prefer where possible that you complete and submit the on-line application form on this website and email it to us.
Alternatively you may download and print out the application form, complete it and send it by letter post. Please do not extend the length of the forms, or add any attachments. Applications must not exceed 3 pages. Please use text size 12. If you are applying for more than one project, please use a separate form for each project.
