The Whittaker Trust

The Whittaker Trust was established in Guernsey by the late Mary Whittaker to award bursaries to selected students studying an:

Undergraduate degree

Postgraduate degree

Equivalent level course


Medicine, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biochemistry or similar STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) subjects.

Applicants must have a Guernsey permanent resident certificate (see application form).

Unlike some bursaries, the award is free of any commercial interests and you will not have any requirements placed on you concerning employment after your studies.

The Bursary will be a maximum of £3950 per year of study, typically paid in two equal tranches during the academic year  however the payment schedule may be altered depending on the course and your circumstances. The award is for each year of study of the specific course, subject to appropriate progress being made each year. You will be responsible for declaring the award to any relevant authorities.

Applications must be made using the Application Form and submitted before the closing date shown on the Form. You are welcome to include a c.v. (if you have one) with your application but you must still answer all of the questions on the Application Form.

All applications will be acknowledged by email and short-listed candidates will be invited for an interview. Contact will be made with you using the email address shown in your Application Form – please make sure you check your email.

All decisions concerning an award are at the sole discretion of the trustees who reserve the right to offer variants of the above if they feel it appropriate. The trustees will give particular consideration to how an award will help applicants and the difference it will make to their finances.
