How to Apply

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

 

Please check the website for further updates. 

 

The Reid Trust is a small organisation with limited funding and no administrative support. For this reason, we ask you to observe the following instructions very carefully.


When the Reid Trust is next open for applications, the form will be available here.


Please complete this and return two copies of your form, together with a covering letter and a one page c.v. attached to each copy, to the address below. You must also enclose two copies of each of your two references. Please ask your referees to place both copies of their references into one sealed envelope addressed to the Reid Trust, and to sign their name across the seal, before sending the reference to you.
