Students from Glusburn or Sutton-in-Craven who are in further education at universities or colleges can apply for a small grant to support their studies, thanks to the Sir John Horsfall Exhibition Foundation.

Students working

The committee of the Foundation will consider grant applications for the 2021/22 academic year.  To be eligible for a grant, applicants must live in or have attended community or voluntary schools in the parishes of Glusburn or Sutton-in-Craven before the age of 16.

Applicants will be expected to 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 around £100.

Further information and application forms are available by emailing

The closing date for applications is 31 January 2022.
