Applications for support are invited from persons who meet the above criteria and who were born in Scotland or the Counties of Cumbria, or Northumberland, or who are (or whose parents or guardians are) at the time of the award resident in any of these places.

The Trust has charitable status with limited funds and can only support those people whose needs are greatest. Awards are made at the absolute discretion of the Trustees and submitting an application does not necessarily guarantee support.

Applications to the Trust can be made at any time of year although the deadline for an application in any year is the 31st November. Informal interviews are generally held in Carlisle in mid-December each year to fit with holiday periods. An application form is available to download
