Chance to Study operates as a “grant giving” charity supporting projects working in the area of educational achievement through school years, helping to ensure that our young people can be all they can be. We seek to support projects and activities in Scotland, with the aspiration of alleviating the impact of poverty or financial hardship, lack of social exclusion, relative/multiple deprivation and disability or illness.

What we will fund Projects or activities that we will support will:

• be undertaken by registered charities that hold a charity bank account

• be delivered in Scotland • work with the most vulnerable families with school aged children at a demonstrably high risk of being negatively impacted by poverty

• demonstrate involvement of individuals and communities that understand and have experience of the issues that poverty presents

• work outside, or supplementary to, statutory responsibilities

• clearly demonstrate positive impacts

Examples of projects or activities that we may consider funding include those delivering:

• provision of after school care/holiday cover ensuring time and resource for additional educational support

• provision of specific IT/educational equipment for socially deprived children or children suffering from any form of physical or mental disability

• one to one mentoring of children struggling within school because of family circumstances

• provision of breakfast clubs providing nutritional and educational support
