1. Introduction.

Here at The Wisdom Trust, we’re very keen to encourage young people to take advantage of all the educational opportunities available to them and that includes studying for a qualification (i.e. a diploma or a degree) at an establishment for higher education, such as a college or university.

We do appreciate, however, that the costs of going into higher education can be quite high and in some cases can actually result in the student living very near or even below the poverty line as they struggle to pay off the costs of their education after they’ve completed their studies.

Since one of the objectives of The Wisdom Trust is to help relieve poverty wherever it exists, we want to do what we can to help this situation, so we've introduced our special Wisdom Trust Education Grants.

2. The Wisdom Trust Grant Fund.

One of the privileges of becoming a Wisdom Trust member – a friend of The Wisdom Trust – is that you can build your entitlement to a special Wisdom Trust personal grant fund in your name. And one of the uses of this special grant fund is to apply for a Wisdom Trust Education Grant to help offset the costs of higher education.

If you're a full-time student (or have been recently – say within the last 10 years) you can use some or all the value of your Wisdom Trust Grant Fund to apply for an Education Grant to help offset the costs of your higher education (university or college tuition fees etc.).

Your special Wisdom Trust grant fund starts at a value of zero when you first register. Then, from that point on, little by little, you can add value to your fund every time you log in and use the website's free built-in education programmes to earn credits (Fundraising Credits – or FC’s), or when you shop online or take advantage of any of our special free offers.


3. Spread The Word And Get Even More Benefit.

Furthermore, if you help us spread the word and introduce your friends, family, classmates and colleagues, primarily to help you support your own favourite charity or good cause with their votes, an added benefit is that your own personal Wisdom Trust grant fund accrues extra value for the credits (FC's) they earn through their use of our website and whenever they shop online or take advantage of any our special free offers.

This is because our website recognises the fact that you introduced them and that we wouldn’t have the opportunity to engage with those new members without you introducing them in the first place. So it’s almost like a special ongoing ‘thank-you’ to you for helping us spread the word.

Not only that, the bigger your own personal network or ‘family tree’ of friends and family grows, the more people will be helping build the value of your own Wisdom Trust grant fund.

So your fund will accrue extra value for the activity of your friends’ friends and family, the friends of your friends’ friends, and so on, down through at least eight generation of friends and family. In fact, your fund will grow every time anyone in your personal network logs in, uses the website’s built-in education programmes to earn credits, and when they shop online or take advantage of any of our special free offers.

There are several ways you can then use the value of your fund to make a difference, and, as we said just now, one of these ways is to apply for a Wisdom Trust education grant to help offset the costs of higher education.

4. How Are Education Grant Applications Processed?

Once an application for an Education Grant has been processed The Wisdom Trust will contact the member for information about their course and loan provider etc. so we can deposit the appropriate value of the member’s Education Grant with the appropriate body to reduce the total balance outstanding to the member.

To apply for an Education Grant, the value of your Wisdom Trust Grant Fund must exceed £10 and you must be active at that time (i.e. with at least 200 FC's this month or last month). To start the process, use the link from within the [Gold Money Options] page from the [Members] menu, when you're logged in.
