FundingYoung Persons Travel Expenses Grant Scheme: Application Form

The Young Persons Travel Expenses Grant scheme was developed to meet objective 2 and 7 of the Westray Development Trust:

The Westray Development Trust Directors have agreed to an annual travel expenses bursary fund, to assist the goal of “advancing education and in particular to promote opportunities for learning for the benefit of the general public” and “To relieve those in need by reason of age, ill-health, disability, financial hardship or other disadvantage (includes relief given by the provision of accommodation and care)’ respectively”.

Bursary awards will cover 100% of return travel expenses to Mainland, Orkney for young people under the age of 26 who are in full-time education, to enable the applicant to attend eligible events, up to a maximum of £100 per person per year.

An eligible event is one that has been organised by a recognised or established group or individual and open to attendance by Westray residents. The defining age limit for a young person is in line with that set by the Scottish ‘Young Scot National Entitlement Card’ and therefore may be subject to change.

Applicants must be ordinarily resident on Westray i.e. Westray is where they live for most of the year.
