Scottish Children’s Lottery - Chance to Study
Created: 10/12/2020, Updated: 08/01/2021
Chance to Study is a Scottish Charity and society lottery operating as part of the regular Scottish Children’s Lottery. Chance to Study operates as a “grant giving” charity supporting projects working in the area of educational achievement through school years, helping to ensure that young people can be all they can be.
It seeks to support projects and activities in Scotland, with the aspiration of alleviating the impact of poverty or financial hardship, lack of social exclusion, relative/multiple deprivation and disability or illness, with the aim of giving all young people in Scotland the opportunity of a productive future where they can become young adults with a positive contribution to make to society.
Projects or activities the fund will support will work with the most vulnerable families with school aged children at a demonstrably high risk of being negatively impacted by poverty.
