The Davie Trust

The Davie Trust gives educational grants for children and young people aged 5 to 24 who were born or live in Lumphanan, Torphins and Kincardine O'Neil in Aberdeenshire, or within the postcodes AB31 and AB34. See 'who is eligible' to find out more.

The Trust gives grants to help with the costs of:

  • school uniforms

  • music lessons and instruments
  • travel costs
  • extra university costs
  • apprenticeship costs
  • overseas study

Unfortunately the Trust can't give grants for anything that has already been paid for.
