Sir Thomas White’s Loan Fund

Loans for people aged 18 - 34 who have lived in Leicestershire or Rutland for the last three years and have a gross annual income of less than £15,000 per annum. Loans are to assist with the cost of post-graduate courses anywhere in the world.

The loan is interest free for 9 years, but becomes repayable by equal instalments after 3 years.

Last updated on 9 April 2019

Who is eligible?

People between 18 and 35 years of age who have lived in Leicestershire or Rutland for the last three years and are applying to study or already studying on a post graduate course.

You must have a gross annual income of less than £15,000 per annum and have liquid assets of less than £40,000.

This is a loan scheme rather than a grant, so it has to be paid back.

How to apply?

Contact the charity on 0116 204 6620, or complete the form on their website to ask for an application form. 

Once the charity receives an application form you will have an interview with trustees. Interviews take place in February, May, August and November. Applications are required at least 4 weeks before the interview dates.

Other information

Once you have registered and received an application pack from the charity, some organisations in Leicester will offer one initial individual session free of charge. Visit the website for a list of these organisations.
