Eligibility Criteria

Firstly, where do you live and what is your age? If it is within six miles of the centre of Billericay and you will be under 25 years of age on the 1st of September in the year of the application, then the Trustees can consider your claim.

Secondly, what is the application for? The Trustees can make awards for:-

  • University or College Education.
  • Vocational Grants for help to enter a Trade or Profession.
  • Travel grants in furtherance of Education.
  • Recreational grants for recreation and social and physical training not provided by a Local Educational authority.
  • Cultural Grants to enable beneficiaries to study Music or other Arts.

Thirdly, what are the financial circumstances of your parents? This has to be taken into account and the information will be treated with the strictest confidence. Furthermore the Trustees are aware that other factors do have to be considered - such the expense of a particular course and/or the opportunity to earn money for yourself - before any decision is made (if your parents wish, this part of the application form may be sent separately to the Clerk).

The trust deeds simply say ‘the Trustees are to make grants to those persons who are, in the opinion of the Trustees, in need of financial assistance’.

Fourthly, the timing of the Application. The Awards Committee of the Trustees meet in early July each year to consider the applications and to make grants.

Fifthly, the review procedure. Sometime in late June or early July all applicants will be invited to an informal meeting with members of the Awards Committee. This meeting will take the form of a conversation regarding their application, their future plans and background information about themselves, to give the Trustees a better feeling for the person behind the application form.
