I'm just not sure that people should necessarily receive state funding to do it - although there's certainly something to be said in terms of interesting ways things could be tied into ideas like the universal basic income they've been trialing in Finland and other such concepts.
Essentially, I'm not sure why 'hobby studying' is more worthy of investment than early years education (When I become world dictator, education funding would be focused on the under 5s, as that's where you can make the biggest difference to overall outcomes)
One other solution might be getting funding from the corporate sector / things like Patreon etc. to pay for your area of interest, but that's getting back to a quasi-Victorian model of needing a rich benefactor / being idle rich yourself to be able to do it.
