Duncraig Educational Trust Scheme

What You Can Apply For

Awards of up to a maximum of £1000 (or 75 per cent of eligible costs) are available. Due to lower reserves than in previous years, awards rarely exceed £250.

The eligible costs depend on the type of assistance you are applying for but can include, for example:

  • Tuition or course fees if these are not available from other sources such as the Student Award Agency for Scotland (SAAS)
  • Living expenses if you are living away from home  
  • Travel costs if you are living at home and travelling to study  
  • Cost of specialist sports coaching, attending training sessions or competing in national or international sporting events 
  • Essential specialist equipment (based on the provision of at least one estimate)

You cannot, however:

  • Make a retrospective application, for example apply for activities or events that have already taken place or for courses that have already started
  • Apply for standard IT equipment such as PCs and laptops
  • Apply to repeat a failed year or to undertake a completely new course of study
