Castle Dairies Fund to support STEM students in Caerphilly Now Open For Applicants.

Posted on 2nd July 2021

We are pleased to announce that our Fund with Community Foundation Wales is now open for applicants, from July 1st, closing on August 19th.

The Castle Dairies fund aims to help young, talented people in Caerphilly who wish to study STEM subjects, but need a financial boost to support their ambitions.

Individuals, organisations, and schools working with people who live in Caerphilly who are interested in studying STEM subjects can apply for a grant from the Castle Dairies Fund.

Castle Dairies Managing Director Nigel Lloyd said: ‘’The pandemic has exposed a gap between those children lucky enough to live in well-resourced households and those who struggle to gain access to some of the resources that are essential to progressing their educational journey.  Castle Dairies wants to help support those young adults who despite significant hurdles choose to progress into higher education. We are proud to be working with Community Foundation Wales to provide financial assistance to those who qualify and help assist them through their further education.’’

Community Foundation Wales, established in 1999, awards more than £2.6m in grants each year to charities and community groups across Wales.

Katy Hales, Manager, Donor Advised Giving at Community Foundation Wales, said:

“We are absolutely delighted to be working with Castle Dairies to help them achieve their charitable aims. Opening a fund with Community Foundation Wales is not just about fulfilling a corporate social responsibility agenda, or simply a tick box exercise to reassure shareholders. It is a way of demonstrating that Castle Dairies cares about Wales and wants to help disadvantaged people, who are struggling now more than ever, in a tangible way.

We look forward to supporting Castle Dairies to fund STEM students in Caerphilly, who might not otherwise have the chance to fulfil their potential.”
