Supporting a number of education related causes

The Glass Sellers’ Company supports a number of education related causes. The awards are given each year at the discretion of the Trustees.

The Abbott Scholarship Fund

The Abbott Scholarship Fund was founded in 1875 by Past Master John Abbott in honour of the then headmaster of the City of London School, the Rev. E.A.Abbott, D.D.. It was originally intended to pay a bursary to a deserving student entering Oxford or Cambridge University. We now also welcome applications from students at the City of London School applying to Russell Group Universities. The fund is no longer able to cover a full scholarship but pays a bursary to help him cover living expenses during his time at university.

Dudley International Glass Centre (part of Dudley College in the West Midlands)

The Frederick Stuart Award is made annually to a post-graduate student in memory of the founder of Royal Stuart Crystal. It supports the student’s tuition fees at the Dudley International Glass Centre.

The Glass Sellers’ Award is a grant from our own Charity Fund. It is awarded annually to an undergraduate student to support their tuition fees.
