GRANTS FOR SCHOOL TRIPS
Applications can now be made for grants for educational trips due to take place in the school year 2013-14. 

Trips must be for students in schools or sixth form colleges in the maintained sector. One of their purposes must be to stimulate appreciation of visual art and to encourage students to enjoy looking at works of art, especially painting. But that need not be their only purpose, nor need students be studying art or design. Indeed the Trust is keen to support trips and projects not confined to students taking art exams and not narrowly focussed on the requirements of a particular exam.

The normal maximum grant will be £2,000. The Trust is willing to make larger grants for trips involving students from more than one school. We take value for money into account. We also look for evidence that trips will be enthusiastically and efficiently organised and students carefully prepared for what they will be seeing and doing.

Applications should not normally exceed 800 words and should include the following information:

the address of the school or college or other body applying, and the name of the member of staff who can be contacted about the application;
the type of institution, which the school or college, or other applicant, is; 

when the proposed trip will take place and what the itinerary will be;
the age group of the students and how they will be selected for the trip; 

approximately how many students and staff will take part;
the main aims of the trip or project and how it is hoped to achieve them;
how students will be prepared for the trip and whether they will be encouraged to focus on any particular topics or works of art; 

the approximate cost of the trip;

the level of grant sought the use to which it would be put and how the balance of costs would be met.
Five copies of each application should be sent to the Eridge Trust, 19 Lotfield Street, Orwell, Royston, Herts SG8 5QT, to arrive no later than 31 May 2013. Applicants will be told in early July whether or not their application has been successful. Contact the Trust at the above address, or by email (dkm.cowdy@btinternet.com) or telephone (01223 207549), if you have questions about eligibility or how to apply. 

Grants to Museums and Galleries 

The Trust also makes a limited number of grants to museums and galleries for projects aimed at encouraging young people up to university age to enjoy and appreciate art. These grants may be up to some £5,000 a year for several years running. We are at the moment particularly interested in projects aimed at encouraging university and college students to enjoy and make use of their local museums. If you wish to apply on behalf of a museum or gallery for a project for young people, please contact us (telephone 01223 207549, email dkm.cowdy@btinternet.com) to discuss what you have in mind.
DEADLINE 31 MAY 2013

ROLEX AWARDS FOR ENTERPRISE
The Rolex Awards for Enterprise, which are given every two years, are now open for applications for the 2014 round. The awards are designed to recognise "extraordinary individuals who possess the courage and conviction to take on major challenges". 

They are given for a new or ongoing project anywhere in the world - "one that deserves support for its capacity to improve lives, or protect the world's natural and cultural heritage". 

The 2014 Awards will be open only to young candidates, those ages between 18 and 30. 

Applicants must submit details of their project that tackles the world's most pressing issues in one of five areas: science and health, applied technology, exploration and discovery, the environment, and cultural heritage. These are judged on their feasibility, originality, potential for sustained impact and, "above all, on the candidates' spirit of enterprise". 

The successful Young Laureates will each receive 50,000 Swiss francs over a period of two years. In addition, Rolex ensures all winners receive access to its network of more than 100 past Laureates, as well as the benefit of international publicity through media coverage and the Rolex Awards website.
