Student Guide

We support students each year in undertaken exceptional opportunities to further their learning and to develop their career prospects. Many of these opportunities involve travel or spending an extended period of time on location; something that can be difficult to afford for many students.

Funds are awarded throughout the year to ensure that students are able to take on these challenges and expand their learning.
