The Alexander W Davie Trust (the Trust) provides financial assistance for educational purposes to children and young people under the age of 25. Annual awards of up to £7,200 per student/pupil are paid by 3 instalments at the beginning of each academic term. The Trust currently makes awards totalling around £120,000 per year.Although the Trust awards are primarily for core education costs, the Trustees do also consider one off applications from the parents of children who meet the criteria for expenses such as educational school trips and private tuition. Such applications are considered by the Trustees as and when they arise throughout the year.The Trustees are working with Robert Gordon’s College to establish an Alexander Davie Scholarship in which the Trust may assist in funding a student who meets particular criteria through their years at Robert Gordon’s College. This initiative is now being extended to include St Margaret’s School for Girls and Albyn School. This website will be updated once these additional scholarships are available.Due to the requirements of the Trust, there are some key conditions that need to be met. These are shown on the Eligibilitypage.The Trustees meet annually in September to consider applications received on behalf of young people embarking on the next stage of their education at School, College or University. Applications are means-tested and the amount awarded may be determined by family financial situation. Please note that no retrospective payments will be considered by the Trustees.
