College Awards and the Marcus Merriman Travel Grant

These grants are available by applying to Pendle’s Assistant Senior Advisor, Dr. Nigel Watson. The cover sheet can be downloaded HERE

Awards are normally given to individuals or groups of students planning to undertake travel to enable them to broaden themselves in some way, or gain new experiences.

Please write a letter, addressed to the Assistant Senior Advisor, giving dates of travel, full details about the purpose of the trip and outlining what you hope to achieve and attach the cover sheet.
