The Ernest Cook Trust has announced that it is accepting applications for funding through its Apprenticeships and Scholarships Grant scheme.
UK-based Registered Charities, Community Interest Groups, Not-for-Profit organisations and State Schools can apply for grants of between £500 and £10,000 per student per year to support environmental work-based training programmes, placements and academic studies. The Ernest Cook Trust will consider funding for the full period of the scheme, pending annual reviews and submission of the annual monitoring report.
Apprenticeship and Scholarship programmes should have an emphasis on environmental engagement eg. education about the land, food production, climate change, engineering technology, renewable energy, understanding nature and biodiversity and developing skills to ensure meaningful connections with the natural environment.
The closing date for applications is the 27th September 2019.
