All Saints Educational Trust is offering Scholarships open to international and UK/EU who are over the age of 18 and have admission to study at recognised institutions of higher education in the UK.
The All Saints Educational Trust makes personal grant awards to teachers, intending teachers and students in Religious Studies, Home Economics and related areas. Corporate awards are made for imaginative new projects which will enhance the Church’s contribution to higher and further education
Within the framework set by the Trust’s governing document, its Trustee (the College of All Saints Foundation) enjoys discretion as to how it applies Trust income in making grants and awarding scholarships. The criteria applied may change from time to time, but at present the main purposes of the awards the Foundation makes are:
- To increase the numbers of qualified Religious Education and Home Economics teachers, and of primary teachers with a specialist focus in these areas;
- To improve the skills and qualifications of experienced Religious Education and Home Economics teachers at all levels of education; and
- To support specifically Religious Education and Home Economics teaching, and teaching in related areas, including the promotion of community public health and nutrition and of religious literacy, both at home and overseas.
Worth of Award
Applications may be made for contributions towards tuition fees, related expenses and maintenance costs. Scholarships are not granted to cover the school fees of an applicant’s children.
- Applicants must be able to fulfil all of the following criteria:
- Applicants must be over the age of 18 at the commencement date of their proposed course. There is no upper limit.
- Scholarships are awarded to enable applicants to follow a course of study provided or accredited by a United Kingdom higher education institution within the meaning of the Further and Higher Education Act 1992, for a degree or other award conferred by such an institution. Scholarships are not currently awarded for further education (up to the standard of GCE Advanced Level, Scottish Highers, NVQ Level 3 or equivalent).
- Overseas applicants (whom the Foundation defines as those who would be liable to pay overseas student fees at United Kingdom universities) must already possess a first degree or equivalent qualification, acquired at least two years before commencement of the postgraduate course which the scholarship is intended to fund.
- They must also be able to produce a written offer of admission from the institution where they propose to study. This offer may be conditional on funding or on satisfying immigration requirements, but any other conditions (for example as to academic or language prerequisites) must be satisfied before application is made to the Trust.
- Scholarships are available for up to three years. The continuation of scholarships granted for more than a year is conditional on such evidence of satisfactory progress as the Committee may require. Individual applications in respect of courses lasting less than a year are not normally considered.
- Scholarships will not be awarded to applicants who already have sufficient funds to sustain them whilst studying; nor as an alternative to taking out a student loan or government grant available to the applicant.
- The Committee must be satisfied that the course to be funded by the scholarship will support Religious Education or Home Economics teaching in schools, or the development of education.
- When deciding between otherwise eligible applications, regard will be had to the contribution to society likely to be made by the applicant with the Trust’s support.
