Applications open for Grace Wyndham Goldie (BBC) Trust Fund

Applications are now open for grants from the Grace Wyndham Goldie (BBC) Trust Fund, which exists to provide support to those working in broadcasting or an associated profession, now or in the past.

The fund extends to help the children and/or dependents of successful applicants. There are also grants available to help young people gain professional or trade qualifications. Additionally, applications can be made for hardship grants which can be made in regards to a specific need.

Assistance may be granted for small educational costs such as traveling expenses, school outfits, books and additions to educational awards.

The fund was founded in memory of Grace Wynham Goldie, a pioneering producer of mid-century television broadcasting, who relaunched an ailing Panorama in 1955, with Richard Dimbleby at the helm. She is also known for launching Press Conference, in which, each week, a panel of four journalists interviewed a leading politician. She was known for being a prominent female presence at a time when television was dominated by men.

Applications are open until 31 July, with successful candidates being awarded in September.

To apply, either write to request an application form from: BBC Pension and Benefits Centre, Broadcasting House, Cardiff, CF5 2YQ or to download an application form click here.
