Robert Nicol Trust

The Robert Nicol Trust is an educational charity which makes small financial awards to support students from or based in the Aberdeen region who are undertaking courses of one kind or another at the post-school level.

Robert Nicol himself was a native of the City of Aberdeen who developed a textile business in Manchester in the second half of the nineteenth century. In his will, he directed that, on the death of his wife, the major part of his fortune should be entrusted to a group of trustees 'for the advancement and promotion of education in the City and County of Aberdeen'.
