The Presidents Award Scheme Educational Grants and Scholarships From the RBL.
The President’s Award Scheme (PAS), offered by the Royal British Legion Women’s Section, can provide educational grants and scholarships to the children of serving and ex-Service non-commissioned ranks up to university age.
One-off grants of up to £500 are available to help pay for course fees, public transport costs, text books, course equipment, specialist clothing and more. Alongside the grants, scholarships are available for applicants who are going to university and aged 21 or under. A continuation application is required each year and is accepted up to age 23.
Up to £1,500 per year can be awarded to Service children going to university to study for their first undergraduate degree; usually awards are made to help with accommodation costs.
The awards are decided by committee who will look at the individual circumstances of each applicant. The Committee meets tri-annually in January, July, and September.
