Dykes Exhibition

The foundation makes bursary awards to students between 16 and 25 years old who are undertaking courses in further or higher education. There is a preference for students who are studying at undergraduate level at a UK university. The awards made are normally for a maximum period of three years (occasionally four years). The bursaries are for the general use of the student to assist with fees, accommodation, purchase of books and equipment, travelling or any other expenses incurred by the student.
