VACATION TRAVEL AWARDS
The college has a small amount of money available to make grants to undergraduates (normally first or second year students) who wish to travel for some educational purpose, but not as part of their degree, during the Spring or Summer Vacations.
These typically vary from £50 to £150 and are limited by the funds available. Applications will be judged by the Senior Advisor and JCR President who will look for projects which have some educational component but which are not simply work that is required for a particular University course. The recipient of a grant is required to submit a report on his or her project by the last day of the following term.
If you would like to apply for a vacation travel award, application forms are available from Bev in the College Office. The form should be completed and sent to the Senior Advisor, Kevin Huggett c/o Bev in the college office by the following dates:
FOR EASTER VACATION TRAVEL BY FRIDAY WEEK 6 LENT TERM
FOR SUMMER VACATION TRAVEL BY FRIDAY WEEK 6 SUMMER TERM
