Mains of Loirston Charitable Trust

The Mains of Loirston Charitable Trust was set up by the late Alexander Williams Allan for “the advancement of education in the fields of either the practice of agriculture or the science of agriculture in Scotland”.

 

Grants can be applied for a variety of purposes where the Trustees will then use their discretion to decide which grants to approve. Preference will be given to grants which fall into one of the following criteria.

 

  • Facilitating the education of school children attending Scottish schools in agricultural practices and farming

 

  • Providing scholarships for students studying agriculture at a Scottish University, Scottish Agricultural College or other further education institution in Scotland.

 

  • Providing funding for applied research in an aspect of agriculture whether by a research institute, university or other educational institution in Scotland.

 

 

Applications from all interested parties will be considered though if there are two applications of equal merit, preference will be given to an application which benefits farming in the North East of Scotland.

 

The Trustees meet up twice a year to decide upon grants and the closing dates for applications are the 15th of May and the 15th of November.
