Grants of up to £1,000 made available for Harrogate students to buy books

Students living in Harrogate who are taking post-16 education courses have been invited to apply for a small grant from a local trust.

Students living in the Harrogate district who are currently taking post-16 education courses have been invited to apply for a small grant from a local trust. The fund, which is administered by North Yorkshire County Council, is available from the Haywra Crescent Educational Trust. The grants can be used to buy books and equipment or to fund travel that relates to study. The money is available through the proceeds of the sale of a former education property in Haywra Crescent, Harrogate. A council spokesperson said:

"This year the trust has around £1,000 to distribute to students from the Harrogate area who are studying at schools, colleges and universities outside the Harrogate Borough."
Further information and application forms are available by emailing post16@northyorks.gov.uk. The closing date for applications is 31st January 2022. Read more local stories from Your Harrogate here.
