Applications for Grants

Applications for grants from the Fund are sought from children and young people (or the parents) in the locale who are encouraged to return to the Community after their period of study and participate fully in imparting their knowledge and experiences to the youth of the Edgware area and indeed any other areas where they choose to pursue their education or careers. See link to application form which should be sent in confidence to one of the Trustees.

As a result of the grants supplied by the Charity a number of children of members of the Community have been able to commence or continue courses of study at Yeshiva or Seminary which would not otherwise have been possible. Indeed many of them have returned to their home town or relocated to pursue further educational studies in the UK have used their widened knowledge and experience to assist with and give benefit to both formal and informal educational activities not only in the wider Edgware community but in Jewish communities throughout the  UK and Israel.


Grants are awarded in the discretion of the Trustees to worthy applicants according to a consideration of their parents’ financial means and the appropriateness of the suggested course of study as against the Charity’s objects.
