HUSCROFT EDUCATIONAL TRUST

 

Application Instructions

Applications for the Huscroft Educational Trust Awards will be reviewed twice a year by the Advisory Board and recipients will be determined at that time. Awards are typically for one year of support and two payments, unless the degree or diploma sought requires less than a year of study.  Students intending to start school in the fall should submit applications to the Board by July 15 of the same year in order to receive a first payment in September.  Students intending to start school in the spring should submit applications to the Board by January 15 of the same year in order to receive a first payment in March.  It is now the intention of the Board to consider applications as late as possible before classes begin.  Note that this is a change from how applications have been considered prior to 2006.

 

Students who would like to apply earlier are welcome to submit their applications six months earlier at the prior application deadline.  Such early applications are preferred as they allow the Advisory Board to more easily project financial needs.  Later applicants may encounter more competition for funding.   Since such early awards are typically made before a student completes prerequisite high school courses and gains admittance to a post secondary institution, these early awards are subject to the recipient submitting acceptable final prerequisite high school marks and a letter of admittance when they become available and prior to the subsequent application deadline.

 

Forms

Initial Application Form: Used by a first time applicant, typically someone completing high school.

Renewal Application Form:  Used by a recipient, typically someone at university, to request a subsequent year of support.

Payment Request Form: Used by recipient to request payment already awarded and to provide prerequisite marks and/or proof of admittance when requesting such payment and to provide banking information to allow wire transfer of funds.
