An independent group of local people interested in Doncaster’s heritage

Student Bursary Scheme Round 4 Is Now Closed

We are delighted to reopen our bursary scheme.

Once again, we are offering to help Doncaster students pay their university tuition fees when they study built environment subjects such as architecture, town planning, urban design, building conservation or landscape architecture.

We will also help fund students who wish to study traditional crafts such as stonemasonry, woodcarving and building conservation skills.

We are inviting interested students to apply for up to £1000 for each year of their studies.

This scheme is part of the Trust’s education programme aimed at helping Doncaster’s young people get a better understanding of the value of good quality architecture and urban design and to appreciate the rich built and natural heritage of our borough.

Mixing work with University combined with the hefty commute I have to Leeds where I both work and study has been very consuming, but it is still a labour of love and I cannot thank the Doncaster Civic Trust enough for continuing to support me in my academic studies – I do not think I would be here without you!.

The last two years of my degree when I received the bursary, it contributed greatly with helping me being able to create more interesting displays and models which came to mind when I was designing. The picture below shows an example where my design from my final year project was engraved into a crystal which allowed viewers to see the construction, massing and form of the building from all angles. I am very grateful again for the contributions and I hope to try and give something back to the Trust, pushing for younger people to be more knowledgeable about the built environment. Steven
