The Millennium Education Bursary is an annual award made in partnership with the Knutsford Lions, to assist students who are on a higher education course.

During the Autumn Term each year, the Town Council invites applications from students who have commenced the second year of their studies that term. An award of £575 is made to assist with a specific project or dissertation, and applications are open to any student who normally resides in Knutsford or Toft.


Applications for the 2023 bursary are now open. Applicants will need to complete a short application form and provide a statement of 200 words setting out how the bursary will help their chosen course of study. We’ll then hold interviews with applicants via Zoom to determine who should receive the award. The deadline for applications is Friday 17th February 2023.
