The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity - Post graduate education

Loans for people aged 18 - 44 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, typically masters degrees and doctoral studies, anywhere in the world.  We are unable to provide loans for undergraduate level courses.

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

Who is eligible?

People between 18 and 44 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 request 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 and details of our key dates can be round on our website at www.stwcharity.co.uk/key-dates/  

Other information

Eligible applicants may apply for a maximum of £10,000. All applications require two guarantors to support the application and further details on this is included in the application pack.
