Bursaries

There are 2 Bursaries available to  anyone that has attended John Ruskin School, details below:

DOROTHY MANDALL STRONG TRUST FUND

This is a fund that anyone who has ever attended John Ruskin School as a student can access if they go on to study at University.  The specific instructions are:

‘INCOME TO BE DISTRIBUTED TO THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE JOHN RUSKIN SCHOOL FOR THE PURPOSE OF ASSISTING WORTHY AND NEEDY STUDENTS TO CONTINUE THEIR EDUCATION IN INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION’

If you move on to higher education courses, remember to write to school to apply for funding to help towards the cost of your studies.

You can apply each year you are at University.  Please write a letter in September, telling us what you are studying and where, and keep us up to date with any travels or exciting opportunities that you take up.  We love to hear all your news!

Your letter will go to a full meeting of JRS Governors and will hopefully result in you receiving a grant to help buy books or equipment for your course.

The amount available varies from year to year; depending on the state of the stock market and how many students apply, but typically applicants receive a grant in the region of £200.

Address your letter of application to:

TOM USHER FUND

This is a bursary available to any ex-student of John Ruskin School who accesses any vocational course.

There is a fixed amount of £50 available for every year of your course towards the cost of any equipment you may need to buy.  Your letter will go to a full meeting of JRS Governors and will hopefully result in you receiving a grant.

If you wish to apply please send a letter in September telling us where you are doing your apprenticeship and in what trade.
