GRANTS to improve the quality of life for town residents are on offer from the Bromsgrove Institute Trust.
The group, which has helped individuals and organisations across the district since launching in 1893, wants to hear from students and others who need financial assistance.
Grants are aimed at funding educational projects and improving lives in the district.
Higher education students who have lived in Bromsgrove for one year, or whose parents live in the district are eligible for an award.
Organisations can also submit applications for projects which ‘improve the quality of life for Bromsgrove inhabitants’.
The trustees will grant three award levels – up £500, up to £2,000, and up to £5,000 – but ask applicants to be specific about what they want it for.
Any type of project funding will also be considered. Awards are not granted for general hardship.
Past recipients are many and varied, including improving disabled access, buying equipment, funding music and sports scholarships, scouting projects, such as help getting to the World Jamboree, photographic society and funding drama courses.
