The Robert Nicol Trust is an educational charity which makes small financial awards to support students from or based in the Aberdeen region who are undertaking courses of one kind or another at the post-school level. Robert Nicol himself was a native of the City of Aberdeen who developed a textile business in Manchester in the second half of the nineteenth century. In his will, he directed that, on the death of his wife, the major part of his fortune should be entrusted to a group of trustees 'for the advancement and promotion of education in the City and County of Aberdeen'.

Eligibility

Candidates must have been born in the City or in the County of Aberdeen, or in the case of those born elsewhere must have continuously resided in the City or in the County of Aberdeen for a period of not less than five years immediately before the dates of their application.

Criteria

Candidates must submit a written statement of the course of study or research proposed. In any case study shall be carried on in such places and institutions and under such tuition or supervision as the Trustees shall approve. While the Trustees will normally expect an Applicant to be registered with or intending to register with a recognised establishment in the North-east of Scotland, they recognise that circumstances may make it necessary for study to be conducted outwith the region and will accordingly consider proposals which envisage this. Scholarships may be awarded for part time courses. For further information please visit - http://www.peterkins.com/Home/Robert-Nicol-Trust
