Welcome to the Reid Trust website

The Reid Trust was founded in 1868 in connection with Bedford College for Women for the promotion and improvement of women’s education.

Each year the Reid Trust makes six to ten awards of up to £1000 each, to women who wish to undertake further training or research in the United Kingdom.

This site contains information about the grants available and an application form to download. 


The Reid Trust is currently undergoing a period of re-organization.

For this reason the Trust will be not be disbursing funds in 2017.


Please check the website for further updates.
