Apply for the Tashan Daniel 2023 bursary scheme

Wednesday 12 July 2023: Hillingdon Council is inviting young people aspiring to succeed in sports, culture or their education to apply for the next round of funding from a local legacy bursary to help them achieve their goals.

Tashan nominations open
The Tashan Daniel Award is open to all Hillingdon residents, aged up to 21. Through the scheme, young people can apply for up to £2,000 council funding, with successful applicants receiving help for sports equipment, qualifications in art and culture, vocational courses in further education, and sports training and competing opportunities (in the UK only).    

The bursary was created by the council as a lasting memorial to a keen sportsman and Hillingdon resident, Tashan Daniel, who died aged 20 following an unprovoked attack at Hillingdon Underground station in September 2019.  

Cllr Jane Palmer, Cabinet Member for Health and Social Care, said: "Tashan continues to be an inspiration to so many people and these awards in his honour give some of our most talented youngsters a huge helping hand on their journeys to success.  

"We are so grateful to his family for their continuing support and involvement and delighted to back another group of outstanding individuals this year." 

Online applications will close on Monday 4 September. Young people can receive support to the maximum value of £2,000 per person, per year.  

Applications will be assessed by a panel, including Tashan's dad, Chandy, his sister Oceanna and Cllr Jane Palmer.
