ELIGIBILITY QUESTIONNAIRE

If you live outside Lambeth but have been looked after (i.e. in care to) the London Borough of Lambeth for at least one year, you should answer yes. If you live at university but your permanent address is in the London Borough of Lambeth and has been so for at least one year, you should answer yes. All students studying full time degree courses need to show evidence that they have lived in Lambeth for at least one year before the course started



Due to high cost of childcare for under 3s (which a Walcot Foundation grant cannot usually cover), we do not support childcare applications for under 3s.


For university students, we expect you to apply for tuition fee loan, maintenance loan and maintenance grant. For college applicants, we expect you to apply for 24+ advanced learning loan

If you have answered ‘no’ to any of the questions above you will not be eligible for a grant from us and should not complete this form
