  • Scottish Children’s Lottery - Chance to Study

    Created: 10/12/2020, Updated: 08/01/2021

    Chance to Study is a Scottish Charity and society lottery operating as part of the regular Scottish Children’s Lottery. 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 young people can be all they can be.

    It seeks 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, with the aim of giving all young people in Scotland the opportunity of a productive future where they can become young adults with a positive contribution to make to society.

    Projects or activities the fund will support will work with the most vulnerable families with school aged children at a demonstrably high risk of being negatively impacted by poverty.

    Who can apply?

    This is a grant for charities. Examples of projects or activities it supports includes:

    • 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

    Applications for this fund are now open.

    More information and application.
