Vacation Study Grants
University and Departmental Awards
Vacation Study Grants are available to help with the costs of certain courses or field-work organised by Departments and Faculties, or for travel deemed necessary for the particular course being followed. The University publishes a Vacation Study Grant Pink List each year which identifies the activities which fall within the scheme, by Faculty/Department. Please check this document carefully to see if your Faculty/Department provides funds for vacation study.
This fund, in memory of the late C.D. Robertson, Fellow of Trinity College, exists for the purpose of assisting those who would otherwise find difficulty in doing so to take strenuous open-air holidays, either at home or abroad, preferably in mountainous regions. Application forms are normally available from Trinity College Porters' Lodge, from February. Applications must be submitted to the Trustees by the end of April.
For information on these awards, please go to this link. The application deadline isi 1 December.
The awards are intended to give students in their first or second undergraduate years at Oxford or Cambridge an opportunity to travel abroad and extend their knowledge of foreign countries. Final year students are not eligible, but students in the third year of a four year course are considered qualified. The awards are not intended to support scientific expeditions or projects connected with academic courses of research. The deadline for application is 12 February.
Administered by the Language Centre, the AJ Pressland Fund offers bursaries of up to £1,000 to support language study abroad for students within the Schools of Biological Science, Clinical Medicine, Physical Science and Technology. Applications are due by 19 April.
Other University funds can be found be searching the CamFUNDS funding database.
Thanks to the generosity of those alumni who have contributed to our Annual Fund, we are now able to offer significantly incerased support for a substantial number of Exhibitions. These are awarded each year to undergraduate students for travel to help broaden their experience, particulary those students who have not travelled widely before. Grants between £100 and £300 (dependent on destination) are awarded at the end of the Easter Term. All recipients are expected to submit a report on their return (form available online). All undergraduates are eligible to receive up to £500 of travel funding during their time in this College.
To apply, complete a Travel Exhibition application form. Please note that the following are essential:
The deadline for submitting applications is 17 May. Final year students are eligible for Travel Exhibitions, and must intend to use the grant before the following October.
Please note: Exhibitions will not be awarded for travel anywhere to which the Foreign & Commonwealth Office advises against it. Proposals will also not be considered for course-related travel or charity fund-raising events (such as a charity hitch-hike).
The Panton Trust is a small registered charity which provides grants for projects associated with animals or wildlife throughout the world or the environment of the UK. The Trust provides sponsorship for student projects (graduate or undergraduate), with the support of their College. These should not be conventional laboratory research projects but normally expedition projects with serious animal/wildlife objectives (inside or outside the UK). The projects may be in any relevant field including (but not limited to) geography, botany, veterinary medicine, zoology or biology but, in all cases, they will have serious objectives.
