Thanks to the generosity of alumni of the College and other donors, grants are awarded to enable undergraduates to pursue projects of an educational or non-academic nature both at home and abroad.
Awards are made by the Tutorial Committee on the recommendation of the Senior Tutor, with a maximum grant of £500 to any student during the course of an academic year.
The Student Opportunities Fund also supports a number of awards to enable undergraduates to travel during the vacations. Undergraduates should apply to the Travel Award Scheme in the usual way.
Applications for Christmas and Easter Vacations should only be for pursuing projects related to academic course or examination requirements at home and abroad. During the Long Vacation following graduation, awards are only available for projects related to a further course of study at Fitzwilliam College.
Applicants must apply in the term prior to the vacation in which they wish to travel.
Michaelmas term deadline: 29 October
Lent term deadline: 28 January
Easter term deadline: 10 May
The application form will be opened each term. Please use this application form (Raven login required). Reports on travel should reach the Tutorial Officer by the set deadline.
Please see a list of available Undergraduate Travel Funds. Specific funds do not need to be quoted on the application form.
Funding is also available for Charitable and Community projects, for Cambridge based internships over the long-vacation, and for other projects that do not involve travel. Please see non-academic projects page.
