Thanks to the generosity of Alumni and friends of the College, a number of travel grants are available to assist undergaduates.
Only one travel grant will usually be made in the course of any undergraduate career. However, recipients of a Modern Linguists Travel Grant may still apply for a travel grant.
Successful applicants must write a short account of their trip, to be submitted to the Senior Tutor in the first week of the term following, along with receipts to the value of the grant, or the College will ask for the grant to be repaid.
1. General Travel Grants
The College has a limited number of travel grants of £100-£250 to support travel directly connected with an undergraduate's studies or of general educational and cultural value or for charitable purposes. Full details and application forms are circulated each term. Applications are not accepted for travel scheduled after the completion of FHS. Two grants (one of £100 and one of £200 are available) in each term.
2. Modern Linguists' Grant
Modern Linguists can apply for a £200 travel grant as well as the standard travel grant. This can be used towards the cost of the year abroad, or for a separate visit to the country whose language is being studied. Students should apply in the same way as for general travel grants. Applications are not accepted for travel scheduled after the completion of FHS.
3. The Clifford and Mary Angell Travel Awards
These awards are intended to provide opportunities for travel and education overseas to undergraduates at Lincoln College. Applications may be made to the Fund in support of expenses related to participation in exchange programmes, conferences, fieldwork, site visits, summer schools, or other kinds of educational travel outside the UK. The typical value of an award will be £400-£800, but the the Travel Grants panel has discretion to vary this amount should the cost framework of particular projects merit a larger or smaller award. Applications will be invited each Trinity Term. Students should apply using the application form above. Applications are not accepted for travel scheduled after the completion of FHS.
