Hungerford & Camburn Educational Foundation 2020 Grants awarded

The Hungerford & Camburn Educational Foundation was set up by a legacy from the first Headmaster of Hungerford School to give financial support to students of Hungerford for further education or an apprenticeship.

I am pleased to report that we had 20 candidates for the Camburn grants this year, and the interviews were in two sessions over Zoom on 29 and 30 June. The Trustees considered diverse applications from students and apprentices between 16 and 25 years of age, and awarded grants totalling £8,500.
This included an application from a second year medical student for funds towards a blood pressure meter, and a psychology student for funds towards a lab coat. Grants were also made to an apprentice plumber who needed a specialised Analyser tool and an apprentice furniture designer who needed his own plane (rather than sharing one with his dad!). Other applicants requested funds towards specialist software for degrees in music, fashion communication and sports coaching and a camera for A level photography. The Trustees were also delighted to support a music student who requested funds towards a travelling harp, and another student hoping to study for a BSc in Mental Health Nursing needing assistance for books and uniforms.
