The committee of the Sir John Horsfall Exhibition Foundation will be considering grant applications for the 2020/2021 academic year. To be eligible for a grant, applicants must live in or have attended community and/or voluntary schools in the parishes of Glusburn or Sutton-in-Craven before they were 16.

All applicants must provide a reference from either their current or past tutor to prove their suitability for a grant. In previous years, the value of the grants awarded was about £100.
