Kenilworth’s students can apply for up to £2,000 a year to help them study thanks to new initiative from a town charity.

The William Edwards educational charity trustees are offering annual bursaries to help undergraduates gain qualifications in core subjects.

The charity helps provide money for schools and groups in need across the town to further education and learning.

It already offers help for families and postgraduate students, but the new initiative extends to students who may be struggling with fees or living expenses.

Applicants must be under the age of 25, living in Kenilworth with parents living in the town or have been to school there. They must also show a clear need for financial assistance in the application.

The competitive awards are open to those looking to go into IT, science, technology, engineering or maths subjects as well as foreign languages and medicine.

To apply or find our more, contact the clerk, J Hathaway at or on 492407.
