A Grant Giving Trust
for the People of Glasgow

Applications for funding

The Trust award grants to a wide variety of people in many different disciplines, from School trips to Postgraduate courses.

You must apply well before your course is due to start (please read over the FAQs and note application submission dates before starting your application). 

The Trust has been established for over 75 years and is in fact an amalgamation of a number of local Educational Charities.  Amounts awarded range between around £500 up to the limit of £1,650, but applicants should only ask for what they need to allow as many students as possible to be supported. We give around 60 grants every year to the total value of about £50,000.

Applications are not made to a specific category of funding – so you may submit an application even if you’re not sure which category applies best to you. Your submission will be individually considered and we will make a decision based on that.

We’ve Recently Funded:

Glasgow Education and Marshall Trust, through their generous sponsorship enabled me to pursue my course in jewellery design from HND to B. Des. in Jewellery and Technology, without the added worry of financial burden. The money allowed me to concentrate on my studies and helped me get back on my feet after redundancy. I will always be grateful to the Trust and the board members for their support.

The Marshall Trust have now helped me for three years as I have started to take trips out from Govan High to Spain. I consider the Marshall Trust to have partnered with us in Govan High to make things possible that may have been ordinarily out of reach to our young people.

Thanks to all friends, family, family-friends, trusts and businesses, for not just their donations but there encouragement and support too! So for those that are reading this, thank you again! Already I know that this is proving to be the best decision of my life and hopefully after reading this I’m sure you’ll begin to see why.
