Travel Awards

Every year, the College grants several Travel Awards for the summer ahead which are advertised in February, with a deadline for applications at the beginning of the Easter Term, and awards approved by Council, on the recommendation of the Tutors. Students are informed by email and through notices on the College Website; the awards vary in amount from £100 to several hundred pounds and when applying, the College will decide which is the most appropriate Travel Award to suite individual circumstances.  In making these Awards, the College will take into account the financial circumstances of applicants, prior travel experience, prior College financial support received, their record of academic industry and progress, disciplinary record, and the interest of the proposed travel plan.  It is a condition of accepting a Travel Award that an illustrated report be provided by the end of the summer, and that the College be entitled to use such reports in its Annual.

Application

Details of the application procedure and a single application form are available on Sidnet:

External Travel Awards

  • Gladstone Memorial Travel Awards have been able to assist a tremendous variety of enterprising projects for undergraduates in their first or second years.  They cannot be directly connected with a course of study and they are usually not grand enough to attract funding from the usual sources of grants (each award will be up to £600 each).  That is what makes the award valuable and popular.  Please visit their website http://www.gladstonememorialtrust.org/ .  The deadline for applications is mid February.
