Thanks to funding from The Jean Jackson Charitable Trust Field Studies Council (FSC) has £5,000 per year for three years to support young people in need to attend specific FSC courses to develop environmental skills and understanding at a time when they are making career and life choices. When the funds are spent, no further grants will be offered until the start of the next year. Individuals between the ages of 16 and 25 years old who live in the UK and can demonstrate a need for financial support can apply for up to 50% off the course fee and can ask for help with travel costs for the following courses:
- Summer camps
- Duke of Edinburgh Conservation
- Biodiversity focused residentials
- And a selection of the FSC’s Natural History Courses.
Applications can only be accepted for support for one residential course or a maximum of three-day courses per year. Please see the FSC website for further details of eligible courses. Applications must be received at least two weeks before the start of the course but are accepted at any time.
