Award Description

Aldgate and Allhallows Foundation is an education charity that exists to benefit young people from the City of London and London Borough of Tower Hamlets. 

Grants can be made for education costs (books, equipment, travelling costs) maintenance (living costs) and/or payment of tuition fees. 

Grants are normally made for one academic year at a time.  For grants spanning more than one year, payments beyond the first academic year are conditional on receipt of end of year reports from the student’s college or university confirming that their attendance has been satisfactory and that they have successfully completed all exams and course work to enable them to progress into the next year.
