Old Girls' Travel Fund 2021

We are offering former pupils the chance for an award of up to £1,000 towards an educational trip or placement abroad. Preference will be given towards education and other charitable endeavours

Alumni and current UVI pupils are invited to apply for this year's Travel Fund. The Old Girls' Society created the fund to help current Upper Sixth and former pupils who seek to broaden their education by volunteering or working overseas.

While travel may not be quite the same, some of you might be thinking about working abroad this year after leaving Francis Holland, or as work experience as a current UVI pupil, in your gap year, while at university or later in life.

The grants awarded cover up to 25% of the total amount which the applicant needs to raise, up to a maximum of £1,000. All written applications for the grant will be considered by the Old Girls' Committee before being offered. To apply, please email

Closing date for applications is Friday 18th June 2021.
