Lancaster Global Travel Award
The Lancaster Global Travel Awards are available to undergraduate UK students who we believe would be excluded on the basis of cost alone. These awards are given out on a first-come, first-served basis once a student has applied for one of our vacation programmes, and can differ in amount depending on the situation a student is in. The funding we receive is dictated by the University Access and Participation Plan and, primarily, our awards are granted to students who are in receipt of a means-tested bursary from the University. There is also a number of other criteria for reaching students most in need which we will take into account when offering this funding to students:
- Your household income
- You have a disability which potentially limits your options at University.
- You are in a care or a care leaver
- Your parents have not been to university
- You are a young carer or parent, or are estranged from your family.
When applying for a vacation programme you will be given the opportunity to indicate that you are in need of financial assistance, let us know your household income, and whether the criteria above are relevant to you.
When will I receive my award?
Once you have formally applied to be part of a vacation programme, your funding application will be assessed and, if successful, the amount of money awarded will be deducted from the overall price of the trip and communicated to you via email.
Please note: Students are eligible for Global Experiences funding once per academic year, based on when the trip occurred. For example, if you have travelled on a trip in September 2019, you will next be eligible for funding for trips taking place after 1 August 2020.
