The George Wells Charity was set up with money bequeathed by
George Wells of Wavendon. He died in
1713 leaving a sum of money to provide assistance to scholars. The charity now offers students up to the
age of 25, who are full time College or University students or taking NVQs and who
live in the Ancient Parish of Wavendon which includes the original part of
Wavendon, Woburn Sands and Aspley Heath, an opportunity to make one claim per
annum on the charity. Any claim a student
makes must relate exclusively to the costs incurred in relation to books,
uninforms and equipment required as part of their course of study.
Applying for a grant is straightforward and requires filling in an easy application form that needs to be completed and returned with receipts for costs incurred by the student. The grant cannot be used to cover the costs of printer cartridges, computers or travel expenditure.
If you would like to obtain further information or access to an application form please telephone 01908 585368 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
