Go Higher West Yorkshire Grants – Applications Open for £1,000 to £15,000

Go Higher West Yorkshire (GHWY) is working with Leeds Community Foundation to provide funding to communities as part of a larger programme which aims to increase the number of young people progressing into Higher Education from areas where progression rates are currently low, particularly when GCSE attainment is taken into account i.e. young people who do well academically or vocationally in their GCSEs but don’t progress into Higher Education.

GHWY is a consortium of 12 Higher Education partners (colleges and universities) who aim to raise awareness and understanding of Higher Education and help facilitate access to and preparation for studying. GHWY is currently delivering the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP) in 27 ward areas, across West Yorkshire. GHWY is working with Leeds Community Foundation to make £100,000 available to community groups to help more young people aged 13-19 progress into Higher Education from areas where rates of progression are currently low.

Go Higher West Yorkshire Grants will offer grants of between £1,000 and £15,000 to community organisations working in the defined 27 ward areas to develop and deliver their own activity to support young people to make informed choices around Higher Education, and empower parents, carers, other family members or key influencers to support young people in doing this.

Grants will aim to be awarded w/c 6th August 2018 and all funded activity must take place before the end of December 2018. Successful applicants will be required to return all monitoring documentation within one month of activity completing or by 7th January 2019.
