Bolton College is proud to be working with the Leverhulme Trade Charities Trust (LTCT) to provide financial support to eligible students.
The trust have supported students in higher education for many years and are now piloting a scheme in further education.
To be eligible to apply for a financial support from the LTCT, students must meet the following criteria:
Additional criteria may apply, please see Leverhulme Trade Charity Trust Website and application form.
What we mean by Pharmacist:
A pharmacist is someone who is registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council, who sells or dispenses medicines directly to the public. We also accept pharmacy technicians who prepare and dispense prescriptions under the supervision of a pharmacist and are also registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council.
What we mean by Grocer:
A grocer is someone who owns or works in a small independent retail store that sells a wide range of both food supplies and non-edible articles for household use. Typically known as a corner shop or convenience store. Greengrocers and those who own or work for the major retailers (including the main supermarket chains) are not covered by this definition, and are not eligible to apply.
What we mean by Commercial Traveler:
A commercial traveler is the representative, agent or principal of any manufacturer, industrial or commercial firm or company, or wholesale dealers selling to industry or commerce, but not direct to the public; who works in the UK, for the purposes of securing orders and/or promoting business.
Students must meet the following criteria below:
In order to be eligible, students must have a household income of £30,000 or less pa. Our application form will ask both the student and their eligible parent/spouse to confirm their household income and what benefits their household receives. This information will be cross checked by Bolton College who check the student’s financial details when they apply for a college bursary. If the student has not applied for a college bursary and therefore have not submitted their financial information to the college, the college will conduct separate financial checks on that student to confirm if the information they have provided the Trust is correct. We may also offer bursaries to students whose household income is higher than £30,000 if they are in exceptional financial need. These will be assessed on an individual basis by the LTCT, and then the financial details will be cross checked by Bolton College.

Please note that although the College may undertake some administrative functions to support LTCT with this scheme, we are not responsible for any decisions in relation to the allocation or use of funds.
