Lowther Street Trust

The Lowther Street Trust provides financial support to help promote the education of young people aged under 25 that live in the city and district of Carlisle. Schools, Headteachers or Group Leaders can apply to the Trust for funding. 

The Trust can make financial awards to assist with a variety of educational purposes, including:

  • exhibitions at any school, training college for teachers, university or other institution of further education
  • financial assistance, outfits, clothing, tools, instruments, travel or books to assist beneficiaries to pursue their education (including the study of music and other arts) or to prepare to enter a profession, trade, occupation or service on leaving school, university or other educational establishment
  • otherwise promoting the education of beneficiaries, including those with special needs.

Awards will be made entirely on individual merits and on the individual's suitability for whatever type of course they choose to pursue to qualify them more fully for the trade or profession in which they are interested.

The Trust will meet three times a year to consider applications and applicants will be notified in writing of the outcome and, should any funds be released, payment will be made by cheque.
