The Parish Rooms Trust awards financial assistance for educational purposes.`

This includes:

undertaking travel in furtherance of education, which would include school trips, residentials and trips to visit university open days;

preparation for entering a profession, trade or occupation on leaving school, university or other educational establishment.

Applicants must be under 25 and resident in the Parish or attend (or have attended) any school in the Parish of St Paul, Wokingham.

Applications must demonstrate a clear need for financial assistance and should supply as much evidence as possible, including a supporting letter from the educational establishment where that is appropriate. All applications will be treated in strict confidence. Application forms can be obtained from The Parish Rooms Secretary via the Parish Office or downloaded from here
