The Trust is giving support to 18 needy students in 2020, up from 13 last year, amid a surge in hardship caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
The increase in the numbers being helped at this critical time comes thanks to the wonderful generosity of the Trust’s donors and supporters.
The assistance is going to six honours students in the form of Trust bursaries and the Margaret Thomas Scholarship and to 12 undergraduates in the form of top-up assistance for meals and textbooks.
The selections include many students of medicine, which would appear to be appropriate at this time, but others are studying courses in a range of disciplines such as engineering, science, social science and the arts.
You can make a vital difference in the current extremely difficult circumstances by giving as generously as you can to the Trust.
