How To Apply
Each application must fall into one of these three categories:
Pursuit Of Excellence
The fund supports the pursuit of excellence and encourages the development of talent in young people whatever that might be. In the past, grants have been awarded to pupils or students who are excelling in their chosen sport. But the Charitable Trust does not only cover sporting achievement. Applications are invited from young people aged between 5 and 19, who attend one of the academies sponsored by Delta Academies Trust.
The Delta Academies Charitable Trust has links across the world with partner schools, particularly in the region of Mzuvele in South Africa. There, Mzuvele High School is working in a similar structure with its feeder primary schools as we had in the early days of the Academy Trust. The Charitable Trust would consider applications from students or groups of students who would like to develop different links further. In the past the Trust has contributed to exchange visits to and from South Africa. Our vision is that the Delta Academies Charitable Trust will continue to develop its international links.
With a wish to support the local economy and local people, the Charitable Trust would also consider applications from Students who once attended one of the Delta Academies Trust Academies, who would like to either start up a new business, or need funding to develop an innovative business idea. Applications are welcomed from local entrepreneurs up to the aged of 25.
DACT Application Form
Where does the money come from?
The money available for awarding grants are monies which have been raised by staff and parents within Delta Academies Trust.
After the grants has been awarded DACT will want to ensure that the funds are used as expected, and review the intended benefits and what has been achieved.
Delta Academies Charitable Trust give equal treatment to all applicants irrespective of race, colour, sexual orientation, nationality, ethnic origins, disability, age, gender or marital status.
With each grant or donation awarded, the Directors of the Delta Academies Charitable Trust will actively seek positive publicity opportunities. This will then help to increase the awareness of the fund to attract further applications and funding for young people to develop.
Due to the number of applications and the limited amount of funding available, any applicant who has received a grant or donation within the last two years, will be declined.
