Guidelines for Prospective Applicants
Hall's Exhibition Foundation is a charity whose aim is to benefit
educationally young people between the age of 11+ and 25 resident in the village
of Snettisham. Applications are invited from students aged 11 years and
under the age of 25 years who have been resident in Snettisham for at least one
year. For the purposes of calculating the upper age of university students their
age will be taken as at 1st September in the year of their course.
Foundation's income is available each year for the provision of qualifying
grants, the level of which are reviewed each year by the Foundation Governors to
take into account the actual level of income being generated along with the
number of applications being received. Since grants are reviewed on an annual
basis, they can increase or decrease and the figures shown below represent the
present level of grant applicable to the current academic year. The Foundation
gives priority to individual applicants, but should money be available having
satisfied the demands of all individual applicants, then grant requests can be
considered from those local organisations which exist for the benefit /
education of such young people collectively.
Individual grants can be made as follows for the academic year 2020/21: All grants have been increased this year.
To young people of 11+ moving on to secondary education.
Young people of 16+ staying on at school to take A Levels or to attend
equivalent further education
courses. A grant is available for each of the anticipated 2 years.
(£500 per year)
Students of 18+ attending a University or an equivalent educational
course. Each student will be awarded £2000 per year providing they meet the
criteria set out by the Foundation. This payment will be awarded in two separate grants of £1000. £1000
will be awarded at the commencement of each year and a further £1000 in the final term of that year, provided they complete and
return the form, signed by the college to say they have completed that year.
Grants are awarded to assist students in their secondary
and further education courses. They are in addition to any local authority or
state entitlement. Grants are not linked in any way to any national or local
government education authority policy. It is up to the individual student, with
input from parent / guardian as appropriate, to decide just how the money is
spent be it on books, materials, uniform / dress, travel costs or, in the case
of university students, accommodation costs.
Grants must be returned if any
year of the course is not completed.
No additional grants will be
made for word processors, computers, text books, normal travelling expenses of
work experience costs.
Grants for educational courses
or visits will be considered providing the appropriate application form is
completed to the satisfaction of the Trustees and copies of any substantiating
details are enclosed.
All grant applications will be vetted on individual
merit, by the Governors.
Subject to availability of funds, an additional grant
may be considered, in exceptional circumstances, from qualifying students. If
you feel you have a request of merit that you think could be considered then please check
with the scheme Administrator.
Copies of all application
forms are obtainable from the Administrator or can be downloaded from this
