Youth Travel Bursary
A Youth Travel Bursary Project must contain an artistic, cultural, historical or scientific theme, or involve work in an underdeveloped country. Projects must be of at least one month’s duration; involve travel away from home for that time either in the UK or abroad; and not be part of an applicant’s formal education. Applicants can undertake their project as part of some wider enterprise or under the auspices of an organisation sponsoring voluntary work overseas. An application form containing personal details and countersigned by an appropriate person at the applicant’s current school, college, university or place of employment is to be submitted, together with a summary of the project explaining its objectives and benefits, and why the bursary is required. Budgeted costs and sources of non-bursary funding are to be included. Knowle and Dorridge Lions Club will not accept any responsibility or liability for any loss or harm experienced by a successful applicant or by any third party as a result of the project.
Successful applicants will be expected to: a) Submit a short interim report on the project by letter or e-mail approximately two weeks after commencing the project. b) Attend a Lions’ meeting or other event, at a date to be agreed, to make a full presentation describing what the applicant has contributed to the project and what has been achieved for the benefit of the applicant and others. c) Contribute to the promotion of the Bursary Scheme through articles in the K&D Lions website, Parish magazines and in the local press, for example.
