Student Bursary Scheme Now Live!
Are you in full time further education or on an apprenticeship, and living in The Carron Valley Community Council Area? You could now get a grant of £500 per academic year, to support you in your studies.
One of VRG’s strategic priorities for 2015 to 2018 is “Creating Opportunities for Carron Valley Young People and Children to Grow”, which ties in with VRG’s objective of advancing citizenship and community development.
To meet this objective, VRG launched its Children & Young People’s Small Grant Scheme in 2015. To further support to young people in the Carron Valley area we have now launched our Student Bursary Scheme. This scheme will pay £500 per year (up to a maximum of 5 years) to each permanent resident of the Carron Valley area who is aged 16 or over, and enrolled in full time further education or an apprenticeship.
To find out more about both schemes, and to apply, visit our Students, Children & Young People page.
