Award Details

The Clark (Mile-End) Bursary Fund is a charitable endowment which was established in 1868 by a Victorian philanthropist by the name of John Clark. He was a thread manufacturer and prominent citizen from Paisley. The fund is now governed by Rules laid down in a 1974 Scheme (as varied with the consent of the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator in 2013).

The Fund typically receives between 300 and 400 applications each year, but only makes between 5 and 10 grants annually. Grants are awarded at the discretion of the Governors of the Fund, and are given to applicants who show the highest levels of attainment in their studies and extracurricular activities, and in their promise for their future careers.
