CFT Enrichment Scholarships

Enrichment trip to Nepal The Calne Foundation Trust awards Enrichment Scholarships to girls in the Sixth Form for academic or gap year purposes. Applicants need to present their proposed project to a panel which will include Trustees from the Calne Foundation Trust and awards may be made up to £1500, dependent on the project and at the discretion of the panel. 

The types of activities we support
The list below gives ideas of the types of projects that we aim to support. It is not exhaustive and we assess each project on its own merits.

  • A travel scholarship to undertake research or other academic project relevant to A2 studies; 
  • A travel scholarship to encourage and assist girls to broaden their education by attending vacation or other courses;
  • A Gap Year project which will bring benefit to others and is [academically] enriching for the applicant;
  • Funding for leadership activities or courses;
  • Financial support for girls already on bursaries to enable them to participate in school curriculum trips.

When assessing applications for The CFT Enrichment Scholarship, we will consider applications according to the following criteria (not all of which will apply to all projects):

  • benefit to others
  • benefit to self
  • financial need
  • the challenge which the project might present to a particular student
  • the input of the student into the project organisation.

The Selection Committee will be looking for evidence of enterprise and originality; therefore you should make clear in your application to what extent the proposed project has resulted from your own initiative, as opposed to, for example, simply applying for a standard, organised gap year activity.
