Perth and Kinross Educational Trust

If you attend a Perth and Kinross secondary school, you could be eligible for an Educational Trust grant.

Perth and Kinross Educational Trust provide awards annually for further education purposes.  Eligible applicants must have been educated within the Perth and Kinross area.  The area also includes educational establishments which were within old boundaries of PKC.  Additional monies are also awarded to applicants if they meet criteria defined for the competitive bursaries.  The criteria for the specific grants are:-

  • Mr & Mrs James Chalmers Bursary - for persons who attended a Secondary School in Perth who previously attended Forteviot or Stanley Primary Schools.
  • Dow Bursary - for persons who have attended school within the Parishes of Kirkmichael and Moulin or any other persons belonging to the County.
  • Duncan Bursary - for persons who attended Perth Academy.
  • James Stuart Bursary - for persons whose mothers were ordinarily resident in the area comprising the Parishes of Callander and Trossachs when the said person was born.

The closing date for applications is Friday 6th August 2021.  Please note that late applications will not be considered.  The Trust Committee will consider the applications at the annual meeting which is held early in September 2021 (this meeting may be delayed as a result of the ongoing COVID pandemic).

If you are successful, we will then contact you shortly after the meeting and will request your bank details and confirmation of Matriculation to enable us to process payment of the grant.  Payments are processed weekly, therefore you should receive your award within 2 weeks of you providing the information requested.
