Note: Please ensure you include as much information as possible.

First Degrees

The Trustees will not normally consider helping with the basic costs of a first degree, because an existing system of student loans (and in some cases grants) exists to cover these.  However, we do not rule out helping with costs over and above those that undergraduate students on first degrees are normally required to meet.  This, for example, may include field trips, unpaid placements or semesters abroad which students are expected to finance themselves and for which additional funding through the loan and grant system is not available.

Postgraduate qualifications

The Welsh Government has recently announced changes to funding support for students wishing to undertake postgraduate qualifications. We will be considering these changes and will update this page shortly when we are able to advise on our policy towards supporting postgraduate applications to the Trust.

Agricultural and related Land-based studies

Students who are attending the Coleg Gwent Usk campus, or undertaking courses at other institutions, as students of agriculture or related subjects should apply to the Monmouthshire Farm School Endowment Trust Fund (MFSET) direct.

An application form can be downloaded from http://www.monmouthshire.gov.uk/student-finance in the section headed Monmouthshire Farm Endowment Trust Fund.

REET’s Trustees will not normally consider applications from anyone who meets the criteria for a grant from MFSET.
