College Travel Award – apply for a travel award for Summer!

Travel awards are available to students who wish to travel for a course, conference, expedition project or study visit for which the outcome will benefit either your academic studies or job prospects.

If you are planning on undertaking voluntary activities in the UK or abroad during the Easter or Summer vacation period you can apply for a travel award (between £50-£150).  Activities should be for the benefit of your academic studies or future employment, however we are unable to support compulsory elements of your degree scheme. Completed forms should be emailed to Lorna Harrison or taken into Lorna in the college office.

Applications open in Lent and Summer term. A condition of receiving the award is to write a report of at least 500 words (750 max) to be submitted to the Bowland College Office.The student submitting the best travel report from recipients of the Easter and Summer travel grants will receive the Meredith Award, named for Professor David Meredith, Principal of Bowland College 1984-1989.

Lancashire and Cumbria Scholarship

Are you a mature student? Are you joining Bowland College as a first year? Do you live in the Lancashire and Cumbria regions?

We have two awards of £500 each available to incoming first year mature students from the Lancashire and Cumbria regions. Students with dependants who have costs associated with child-care, disabled students and students with special needs are eligible for this award.

All first year mature students who are, or who will be, members of Bowland College and who have a home address postcode within the Lancashire or Cumbria region and meet the criteria are eligible to apply.

The application deadline is 5pm on Friday 27th October 2017 (end of week 3).

The Willcock Scholarship

The Willcock Scholarship was established to commemorate Professor Malcolm Willcock’s period as Principal of the College.  The awards are intended to provide financial assistance to current Bowland undergraduates (including integrated Masters) who are in good academic standing but facing unexpected long-term financial or other difficulties which are beyond their control and which jeopardise their continuing study at Lancaster University.

The application period is now closed for 2017/18.

The Saunders Award

Dr Ian Saunders was Principal of the College for 10 years, from 1989 to 1999. The Saunders Award is awarded to final year Bowland students who have shown outstanding contribution to college activities. Recipients of the award are nominated jointly by the JCR Exec and the Senior Members of the College.

Congratulations to our 2017 Saunders Award Winners: Sam Allan, Maxwell Green and Claire Starkey. 

The Bevington Award

Professor John Bevington was the first Principal elected within Bowland College in September 1964 and served until 1966. The Bevington Award is given for outstanding academic performances by Bowland students in their first year.

Congratulations to our 2017 Bevington Award Winners: Xiaoran Jiang (BSc Hons Accounting and Finance) and Andrew Caton (BA Hons German Studies and Linguistics).
