Modest grants of £1,000 or less are offered to postgraduate students from Burma in the midst of their studies in the UK. They cannot be applied for in advance of the studies commencing in the UK.
The criteria for awarding these grants are a combination of academic excellence and financial need. They can be applied for once a year in advance of a deadline of 1 June , eg shortly before a meeting of our trustees in late June.
Applicants must complete an application form on-line (see www.wallace-trusts.org.uk) and submit it to the Trust’s Secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org), together with a supporting letter, also on-line and on headed paper, from one their academic supervisors employed by the British university. The supporting letter should comment briefly on three aspects of the candidate’s application: academic progress and commitment; personality (why the candidate is worth supporting); and financial circumstances (why the candidate needs supporting). Other supporting documentation must be kept to a minimum and CVs should not exceed two pages.
