Student applications are now open for Prizes and Travel Bursaries

Did you know that as a student you can apply for a number of prizes and travel bursaries up to the value of £1,500?

Each year Loughborough University offers a number of fantastic opportunities for students to enhance their learning experience and expand their knowledge in their chosen subject area. The University is delighted to announce that we have a number of prizes now open, for which students are able to nominate themselves.

Ede and Ravenscroft Prizes

There are four Undergraduate Prizes up to the value of £1,500, two Postgraduate Prizes to the value of £1,500 and one Conference Prize up to the value of £1,000.

Ursula Lockley Travel Bursary

A bursary or bursaries to the total value of £600 can be awarded to assist individual students or groups of students to undertake activities to promote Anglo-German relations.

Loughborough College of Education Commemorative Awards (School specific)

An annual award or awards to the total value of £800 are given to assist students in the Departments of English and Drama, Geography, School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences and the Design School, to enable participation in extra-curricular educational activities.

John Guest Phillips Travelling Scholarship

Two annual travelling scholarships to the value of £500 each, or one annual travelling scholarship to the value of £1,000, are available to registered full-time postgraduate research students. The purpose of the scholarships is to ensure that promising research students are given the opportunity to extend their knowledge of their subject, either within this country or overseas. These scholarships will not normally be awarded to fund conference attendance.

 Nominations for our Community Prizes are also now open; these rely on nominations made by the wider community.

The Hannah Community Prize of up to £200 was created for individuals, groups of students or student households who have given the community recognisable acts of kindness of good neighbourliness.

If you have been impressed by a students’ effort to develop co-operation and aid between the University or Colleges and the local community, the T S Shipman prize could reward them with up to £800.

Information on the criteria and nomination process for all prize applications can be found here. The deadline for all nominations is Thursday 29 March 2018.
