The Swales Trust Fund, administered by Cumbria Community Foundation, awards grants of around £500 to support students who are working towards land-based qualifications. The funding can be used to purchase study materials, specialist equipment, course fees and exceptional travel costs. Students must live in Cumbria and those studying in Cumbria will be given priority; however, students studying outside Cumbria will also be considered. There are no age restrictions. Details of the fund and application forms are at www.cumbriafoundation.org or contact Ellen Clements at email@example.com.
