In the know: Scholarships for young people!
We often get questions from young people at our events regarding scholarship, bursary and award opportunities, available to home students. In response to this, we have compiled a list of some of the most interesting opportunities being offered by various organisations.
Jack Petchey Foundation Individual Grants for Volunteering: This grant is on offer for young people between the ages of 11 and 25 who live in London or Essex. They must be volunteering with a UK based organisation and raising at least 50% of the funds required by the project.
