At the St Matthias Foundation, we are committed to supporting the educational aspirations of individuals who aim to make a positive difference in the world. One of the ways we do this is through our Personal Grant program.


Our Personal Grants are awarded once a year to individuals who are seeking financial assistance for higher or further education. This includes those studying music or other arts, or those looking to enter a profession, trade, or calling. The grant amount ranges between £500 and £3,000, subject to the discretion of our Trustees.


The application process for our Personal Grants is designed to be straightforward and transparent. Applicants are required to provide proof of enrolment/acceptance letter in their chosen course of study and two references. “We evaluate applications based on their potential to contribute to the Church of England's 5 marks of mission, create a healthy society, enhance religious education, and spread God’s love.


We are proud of the diverse range of individuals and projects we've been able to support through our Personal Grant program. We invite you to apply and join this inspiring group of individuals who are making a significant impact in their chosen fields.


If you have previously been a successful recipient of a grant for your studies you are able to apply for further funding. This is not guaranteed and the Trustees always encourage applicants to look at various streams of funding.

At the Foundation of St Matthias, we understand the power of collective effort in making a positive impact. As part of our commitment to fostering education and societal development, we offer Corporate Grants to institutions seeking funding for specific projects.


Our Corporate Grants are awarded once a year to institutions promoting projects that align with the objectives of our Foundation. These projects should aim to advance education in accordance with the principles and practices of the Church of England and contribute to creating a healthy society, enhancing religious education, and spreading God's love.


The grant amount is determined at the complete discretion of our Trustees. “These projects should aim to contribute to the realisation of the Church of England's 5 marks of mission, create a healthy society, enhance religious education, and spread God’s love.


Successful applicants may re-apply in subsequent years for the same project, but please note that further funding is never guaranteed. We encourage applicants to apply to as many foundations as possible, as funding is not guaranteed and often, if given, is not for the full amount requested.
