I've seen an ad for this charity several times in The Vegan
, The Vegan Society's magazine. I just thought this could be of interest to fellow veg*ns.
Here's a quote from their web site:
The Vegetarian Charity is a registered charity that exists to help needy vegetarians and vegans up to, and including, 25 years of age. It also aims to promote knowledge of vegetarianism among young people up to, and including, 25 years of age. The Charity awards grants to suitable projects in most parts of the world. Financial assistance can be given for educational courses and the relief of poverty. In general applicants may apply on their own behalf or, in the case of young children, a parent or guardian can apply on behalf of the child.
Grants are available without consideration of ethnic origin, race or religion. The Charity is UK based but considers applications from most countries. Grants are made to individual applicants for the relief of poverty and to assist with educational courses. Each application is considered on its merits and it is not possible to say in advance whether or not it will be successful. Assistance to students studying courses of higher education is generally only given for first degrees and not for postgraduate study. However, all applications are considered on their individual merits.
I no longer post here after VB was sold in 2012. (See my profile page for details.)
