Grants and Bursaries
In addition to working with schools, we offer funding to both individuals and organisations in line with our conservation objectives.
The Trust offers a limited number of grants of up to £2,000 each per year in order to further projects and research connected with historic parks, gardens or other significant designed landscapes within Somerset. Such projects might address both conservation and education or may relate to new garden initiatives where there is considerable public benefit.
The following are not eligible for grant aid by the SGT: routine maintenance and staff costs, work associated with very large water bodies or forestry work, government-owned sites and non-departmental public bodies such as English Heritage.
A limited number of bursaries of up to £500 are available to individuals whose course involves an element of study connected with parks, gardens or designed landscapes.
