The Kirsten Scott Memorial Trust (KSMT) was set up in January 2012 in memory of Kirsten Scott, who tragically died in October 2011, just after her 25th birthday, following a short battle with cancer.
The aim of the Trust is to provide grants to young people under the age of 26, in order for them to fulfill ambitions, enhance their personal development, and make a positive contribution, either at home or overseas. We hope that through the Trust, beneficiaries will be able to enjoy rich new experiences which they would otherwise not be able to have. So long as there is a demonstrable purpose to the activity, and a genuine need for a financial assistance, the trustees will consider the application.
We hope to create a lasting legacy, as such, all successful applicants are required to provide a report of their experiences, to be shown on the website.
The Kirsten Scott Memorial Trust is a registered charity in Scotland SC042819
