The Lady Downe Award

An award scheme has been set up by the trustees whereby young persons between the ages of 18 and 25 who have completed their full-time education may be enabled to take up opportunities they otherwise could not afford, in a wide range of fields such as music, sport, visual and performing arts, industrial or business skills and academic training of various kinds. More than one award may be made in any one year, but grants do not normally exceed £3000. 

These awards have enabled young people to travel abroad for work placements, to start careers in dancing, acting and film directing, to undertake postgraduate courses, and to take part in international charitable and scientific schemes.  

Applicants are asked to submit an outline of their project and are interviewed by the trustees, who are very pleased when the young people concerned keep them informed as to their progress.
