The Mountsorrel Education Fund is administered by a body of Trustees who at their absolute discretion, can award grants from the funds available to the charity, to assist young people in pursuing their education. Grants may be made to such individuals for the provision of facilities of any kind, not normally provided by the Local Authority.
Applicants or their parents/ guardians must have been resident in the electoral parish of Mountsorrel for at least 12 calendar months.
