The Old Girls' Society has created a fund to help current Upper Sixth and former students who seek to broaden their education and experience through travelling abroad, be that in the summer after leaving Francis Holland Sloane Square, in their gap year, while at university or later in life.

We are pleased that in the last few years at least eight girls have benefitted from the OGS travel fund and have travelled to India, Zambia, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Mexico and Greenland, among other places. Reports of their journeys are published in the annual OGS newsletter.

The grants awarded cover up to 25% of the total amount which the applicant needs to raise, up to a maximum of £750. All written applications for the grant will be considered by the OGS committee before being offered.

How to Apply

All applications should be sent to prior to the deadline of 24th April 2019. Please see the Full Guidelines below prior to applying. A template application form is provided should you wish to use it. Early applications are welcome. Applications will be considered in May of this year.
