The Grocers' Charity funds scholarships and bursaries at a number of schools, colleges and universities
Education is of long-standing importance to the Grocers’ Company. Grants are awarded to a variety of schools and educational establishments to fund bursaries, capital projects and training initiatives. The intention is to promote participation, drive attainment and encourage retention among talented students who need financial support.
We maintain strong working relationships with schools, follow the progress of individual pupils, attend award ceremonies and watch performances. Increasingly our Members act as school governors, participate in student mentorship events and provide work placement opportunities.
The Charity does not accept applications from individual students or unsolicited requests from schools.
