Clark (Mile-End) Bursary Fund

Registered Scottish Charity (SC004959)

Background

The Clark (Mile-End) Bursary Fund is a charitable endowment which was established in 1868 by a Victorian philanthropist by the name of John Clark. He was a thread manufacturer and prominent citizen from Paisley in Scotland. The fund is governed by Rules laid down in a 1974 Scheme (as varied with the consent of the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator in 2013).

The Fund typically receives about 250 applications each year, but it only makes a maximum of 10 grants annually. Grants are awarded at the sole discretion of the Governors of the Fund, and are given to applicants who show the highest levels of attainment in their studies, but also taking account of extracurricular activities and interests, and the potential for successful future careers.
