Field Studies Council Kid's Fund, next deadline 1 June 2018

29 March 2018

The Field Studies Council (FSC) Kids Fund aims to bring environmental understanding to disadvantaged young people by enabling them to attend an FSC course that they may otherwise not be able to take part in due to some form of disadvantage - health, mobility, deprivation or financial.

The Kids Fund will pay for up to 80% of the course fee for groups of 10 or more disadvantaged young people to attend a non-curriculum day or residential course at an FSC Learning Location. This includes all equipment, tuition and waterproof hire costs.

Food and accommodation are included for residential courses. One free staff/adult place is provided for every 12 young people; additional adults pay 20% +VAT.

Funding is not available for groups of people aged under 4 or over 18 (the age limit for young people with special educational needs is 25).


Please read the guidance notes to check your group is eligible before completing the application form.

There are three funding rounds each year which close on 1 March, 1 June and 1 November.
