The W E Dunn Trust

One-off educational grants for students who were born and educated in the West Midlands. The Trust can help with the cost of courses up to and including first degrees. Unfortunately the Trust can't give grants for second degrees.

To be able to apply students must face special challenges in furthering their education. For example, a student might have a physical disability or have lived through particularly difficult circumstances.

Who is eligible?

Students in further or higher education who were born and educated in the West Midlands and need help with the cost of an educational course. Applicants need to face special difficulties in continuing their education, for example because of a physical disability or difficult life events.

The Trust can only give one-off grants. Unfortunately the Trust is unable to help with the cost of second degrees or pay off debts.

How to apply?

Contact the Trust to ask for guidance notes on how to apply.

Completed applications should be sent by post. They need to include a letter from a professional who can confirm the information you have given, and that you have been accepted on your course. 

Grants are usually between £100 and £200. The Trustees consider applications every two weeks.
