Grants may be made to Registered Teachers with permanent contracts with The Moray Council to enable them to attend courses at home or abroad, or generally pursue any activity likely to increase their efficiency and effectiveness as teachers. In previous years, teachers have been awarded grants for a variety of educational purposes including attendance on Vocational Courses and participation in Private Study and Correspondence Courses. Grants were not awarded for projects that appeared to be substantially of a holiday nature.
The closing date for applications is 30 April each year. Applications are considered by the Trustees at meetings in February and May.
Schools in The Moray Council area and schools "in the area comprising the former county of Moray and the former parishes of Abernethy and Duthill all lying within the Badenoch and Strathspey District of Highland" are eligible to apply for Equipment Grants under Section 24 of the Dick Bequest Trust Scheme Equipment.
The availability of Equipment Grants will be confirmed each year in May.
Grants awarded in each year must be claimed by the end of November the following year.
