Grants are available for educational projects and events in South Sudan and Sudan and for South Sudanese and Sudanese nationals studying for a postgraduate course in the UK who aim coming back to South Sudan or Sudan at the end of their studies. The Trust may also give monetary aid to South Sudanese and Sudanese citizens for the costs of shorter training programs, projects and courses in the UK. Please note that at present due to existing problems in transferring funds to South Sudan and Sudan it is not possible for the Trust to support individual scholars studying in South Sudan or Sudan, nor can we normally provide funds directly to organizations in Sudan / South Sudan.
