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

Hungerford & Camburn Trust gives annual grants to young people between 16-25 years whose parents or guardians have lived in the town of Hungerford for at least 3 years prior to the date of their applications.

The grants are not limited to academic courses. We have provided tools and books for an apprentice on a plumbing course and a track saw and router for a young person enrolled on a fine furniture making course as well as funded a hairdressing kit and a harp for different studies.

In recent years we have awarded grants for laptops, text books, computer software, stationery, sports equipment as well as university and college living costs. One student requested funds to buy a lab coat, stethoscope and calculator for use during a degree in medicine. Another wished to buy sketchbooks for a course in fashion and communication.
