Schools groups and voluntary youth groups in the UK are eligible to apply.
The fund is designed to enable disadvantaged young people (aged between 4 and 18 years) to attend a course held at a Field Studies Council location. They could be disadvantaged in terms of their health, mobility, geographic deprivation, or family income. The courses include non-curriculum days and residential courses.
There is an application form available to download from the Field Studies Council website.
There are three deadlines a year: 1st June, 1st November, and 1st March. You can apply at any time during the year and your application will be held until the next round. A new, simpler system will be available from January 2021.
Up to 80% of course fees at a Field Studies Council location are funded, including food and accommodation costs.
