Travel Awards

Girton gives 35-40 Travel Awards each year to its undergraduate students. These are for travel in the Long Vacation and range from £150 to £500. The proposed travel does not have to be directly related to academic study.

As a general rule the awards are only given to undergraduates in their second, third or fourth years. Students from other universities spending a year at Girton, and clinical vets and medics, are not eligible to apply.

Each application must include a one-page description of the proposed travel. The College's Travel Awards Committee judges the applications based on four criteria:

  • the constructive nature of the proposal;
  • the character of the applicant, including contribution to college life;
  • the academic record of the applicant;
  • evidence of careful preparation of the project and presentation of the application.

Students are encouraged to discuss their application with their Tutor and Director of Studies, since both of these are asked to provide input to the Committee. Those thinking of applying should first read the further information. Applications are submitted online, and must be accompanied by a completed Risk Assessment Form.  Clicking here leads to the application form. The system will be open for applications from 3.00pm on Friday 23 February 2018, with the deadline being midnight Friday 27 April 2018.
