The club committee is delighted to launch the inaugural Old Abbotsholmians’ Club Travel Award - a new iteration of the old APA Travel Award. The award will help ensure a new generation of young OAs still in full-time education will be able to fulfil their travel ambitions in a way that will benefit both them and the wider world.
The committee will award 1,500GBP to the young OA whose application it determines best meets one or more of the following aims:
1. Increasing knowledge – either connected to the applicant's studies or some area of personal interest; or 2. Protecting nature – taking part in an environmental project; or 3. Challenging yourself – by undertaking an expedition; or 4. Social responsibility – taking part in a social project for the benefit of others.
The travel award is open to any OA aged 18-25 at the time of submitting an application, and who commits to travelling in the summer of 2020.
