About the Trust

Iain McGlashan founded The McGlashan Charitable Trust in 1992. For more than 30 years the Trust has supported access to education by providing grants to students, currently exclusively for postgraduate study and charitable organisations within the arts in Scotland. Iain died in 2019 but the work of Trust continues.

The next deadlines for applications are as follows:

  • Arts and Cultural Charities –  31 October 2024 and 30 April 2025
  • Postgraduate Students – 31 May 2025. Applications will re-open in early January 2025.

Postgraduate Grants

The McGlashan Charitable Trust provides a number of grants of around £500-£1,500 each year for postgraduate study.

Grants to Organisations

We support arts organisations that remove socioeconomic barriers to participation in culture or educational activities.
