Rob Mott spoke to Michael Wheller, a trustee of the Sir Samuel Mico Trust which is a Weymouth Town Charity, about grants available to students living in Weymouth or Portland who are studying engineering, science, technology or maths. Recently the Trust has had a poor response to an offer of financial support for such students and is looking for applications from those who would benefit from a grant. Mr Wheller explains the background behind the Trust (which is some 350 years old!) and how students can receive and benefit from a grant.
