The Reid Trust was founded in 1868 in connection with Bedford College for Women for the promotion and improvement of women’s education.

Every other year, the Reid Trust makes a number of awards of up to £1500 each to women who wish to undertake further training or research in the United Kingdom.

The Trust has recently completed preservation of its archive material, which documents the support that the Trust has given to dozens of women across three centuries.
