The Arkleton Trust is supported by the following funds:
The Bernard Conyers Fund
The Arkleton Trust Fellowship programme is currently supported by the Bernard Conyers Fund.
The Fund was established specifically to encourage the dissemination of information, findings or new ideas related to rural development practice. Priority is given to material relating to the Third World, the links between Europe and the Third World or the lessons which Europe can learn from the Third World. This year the Bernard Conyers Funds will go towards the Arkleton Trust Fellowship programme.
The David Moore Fund
The David Moore Awards are ordinarily offered biennially. Individuals interested in applying for these awards will be able to view detailed information on how to apply when the next call for applications is published on this website. Applications are not currently being accepted.
The John Higgs Memorial Fund
The John Higgs Fund seeks to identify groups doing specific development, community or educational work in rural areas [not within the schooling system], which are either struggling to start, having trouble in maintaining valuable activities, wishing to develop in new or unfamiliar areas, or seeking to evaluate their work.
The fund has tried to assist these groups to pay for the right person to help and guide their efforts by making small awards as and when necessary.
However, from 2008, the John Higgs fund will be concentrating its efforts on working in an advisory capacity to the Arkleton Trust on its work in identifying with the Arkleton Trust Fellowship programme and is therefore no longer taking external applications for funding.
