Norton Folgate Trust

The Norton Folgate Trust (NFT) disburses the majority of its funds to education and most of its grants are given to individuals engaged in secondary or tertiary education. 

Tertiary education grants tend to be craft-related, such as fine woodwork, stonemasonry and historic building conservation.  The majority of such craft-related grants are made to students attending courses at our Building Crafts College in Stratford, East London.

Who is eligible?

People in further or higher education at an institution in the UK who are studying the craft of carpentry or any branch of the building industry.

  • All students must attend a school or college in the United Kingdom. 
  • grants will be awarded to those that request assistance for study that is craft-related, such as fine woodwork, stonemasonry and historic building conservation.

How to apply?

Apart from grants for students at the Building Crafts College, which are considered in May, all other applications are considered in July.  No grants are awarded retrospectively, so you must apply in the spring before the relevant academic year starting that September. 

Applicants for grants at the Building Crafts College will be told of our decision in June. Other applicants will be told in August.
