The purpose of these Scholarships is to enable extraordinary educational experiences for students from the US.
The Foundation places great emphasis on enrichment of the student experience, by which is meant spending time on activities that go beyond the normal confines of the academic environment. For example, enrichment funds could be used for involvement in:
- Leadership/entrepreneurship training
- Charitable or community work
- Expeditionary work overseas
- Participation in sporting activities or the performing/creative arts.
The value of the award will be up to £8000 p.a., which may be used towards fees or maintenance, plus an enrichment fund of £6000 over three years. This is equivalent to £2000 p.a. but, unless there is a compelling reason, it is preferred that this be used in the second and third years.
