Time to plan a trip!
Grants of up to £2,000 are available to fund educational trips that aim to stimulate appreciation of visual art and to encourage students to enjoy looking at works of art, especially painting. This doesn’t have to be the only purpose of the trip – although it needs to be the main purpose – and students who attend the trip don’t have to study art or design.
Who can apply?
Schools and sixth form colleges can apply.
The normal maximum grant will be £2,000. The Trust is willing to make larger grants for trips with students from more than one school.
How do I apply?
Applications can now be made for grants for trips due to take place in the school year 2015 to 2016, beginning September 2015. You are asked to write a letter of application – there is no formal application form. Details of what you should include in your letter can be found on the Eridge Trust website.
Successful applications will demonstrate value for money, communicate the difference the grant will make to students and be well organised.
The deadline for applications is 31st May 2015.
