Emma Molesworth Trust
We administer the Emma Molesworth Trust Fund, which offers support to people that live in Rutland who take courses related to agriculture.
Grants may be awarded for:
- course materials and equipment
- travel to college / university
- course fees
- special course relate projects - for example field trips and work placements
Grants last for one year.
You're eligible to apply if you:
- normally live in Rutland
- are enrolled or planning to enrol on a course to study an agricultural subject
- are studying in a further education college or university in the European Union
- work in the agricultural industry and want to take a short course of training
Your eligibility will be reduced if you have either:
- an annual unearned income of more than £5,000 (excluding parental contributions)
- capital over £8,000 (other than your house or car)
Maximum grants available
For short courses - 50% of the course fee, up to a maximum of £250.
The maximum grant for long courses is discretionary - this must be considered at the advisory committee, which is held twice a year. Typically, a long course application could receive up to £1,500 per year as a contribution towards a larger long course fee.
How to apply
You can apply at any time. The advisory committee meets twice a year.
