Grants

Oxford University Society

East Kent Branch

 The East Kent Branch of the Oxford University Society awards several bursaries every year, in amounts suitable to the nature of the project, to students from East Kent to assist in their summer activities. The awards will be based on the relevance of the project to the degree courses and the likelihood that the amount will be sufficient, when added to other resources in hand, to achieve the stated goals. These grants will not be limited to activities that entail travel abroad nor will they be greater than £750 per student.

Qualifications:

  1. Students should be in their first or second year of undergraduate study at Oxford University, or third year of a four year undergraduate course
  2. Students should be from East Kent, defined as having their main residential address (or school address when completing their secondary education) in East Kent, which includes the district council areas of Ashford, Canterbury, Dover, Shepway and Thanet, plus the town of Faversham.

Applications:

  1. Applications should be made on the form below.
  2. Applicants should describe their summer project or activity clearly and concisely, with particular attention to relevance to the course of academic study. A budget must be included, showing details of other potential grants and personal contribution.
  3. Applicants must include a detailed, signed, letter (not an email) of support from their academic tutor, not just a certification of approval.
  4. Applications must be sent to the East Kent Bursary Secretary, Mrs D.Worth, West Hill House, The Street, Finglesham, Kent CT14 0NG .The opening date for receipt of applications is Monday April 23 2018 and final date for receipt of applications is Friday June 1 2018. Priority will be given to early applications. We will endeavour to communicate our decisions as soon as possible to enable students to plan their summer projects accordingly. Any queries should be addressed to Mrs Diane Worth @dianeworth1@ aol.co.uk

The awards will be made by a panel of four members of the East Kent Branch and decisions will be final. The successful applicants may be asked to speak at the AGM of the OUSEK in the autumn.
