If you are a student or young person living within the Carron Valley & District Community Council Area, you may be eligible to apply for a grant from VRG.
We have run a Children & Young People’s Grant Scheme since 2015, and have just launched our new Student Bursary Scheme.
The Children & Young People’s Grant Scheme is open to anybody between the ages of 7 and 25, and pays up to £250 per year to help with education, skills development or meeting the challenges of rural living.
The Student Bursary Scheme pays £500 per year (up to a maximum of 5 years), and is open to students who are in full time further education or on a recognised apprenticeship programme.
One very important condition is that to apply for either scheme, you must be permanently resident in the Carron Valley & District Community Council Area.
Full details can be found in the following scheme guidance notes (please read these in full before applying!)
