Travel Bursary


Old Rendcombian Society Travel Bursary 2022 and 2023

Applications for the 2022 and 2023 Awards are open and extended to April for 2022. In the light of a need to avoid unnecessary risk from COVID-19 by travel to countries that have less well-developed healthcare, it was agreed not to offer funding under the OR Society travel bursary programme for 2020 and 2021 years.
The date for 2022 applications has been extended to April 2022. However, it is essential to check the official travel advice and any restrictions for each destination country before making an application for a travel bursary.

It may be possible to provide selective funding to travel bursary candidates who wish to raise money for charity or carry out other worthwhile initiatives closer to home. If for example you have a proposal that requires starter funding and an idea to raise funds or a charitable activity, the OR Society would be pleased to review it. Your initiative will require a written proposal explaining the benefits, location, duration and approximate cost. You may use the travel bursary application form as a template.

If you or a group would like to apply for the annual Old Rendcombian Society Travel Bursary, please download and complete the application docx form here, or download and complete the application pdf form here.

Please read the Terms and Conditions on page 4 of the application form carefully before making your application.
If approved, you will be required to write a report and provide photographs of your travels and may be invited back to the College to talk to current pupils.
