Rotary offer Gap Year funding for 2015 A level students

Rotary offer Gap Year funding for 2015 A level students

The Rotary Club of Bookham & Horsley has made available £1,000 to part-fund the best qualifying gap year projects put forward by students who are resident in the Bookham, Horsley or Effingham area, finishing their “A” levels in July 2015, and planning to take a year out between school and further education to undertake voluntary work of a humanitarian nature.  The objectives of the awards are to support young people in this area to develop their skills, build confidence, and experience other environments or cultures.

  Encouragement is given to  projects that challenge , enhance  personal or social development, help to raise  aspirations and achievement, and are of benefit to other young people and/or the wider community. The project is expected to be of at least one month’s duration, and can be located anywhere. Preference is given to those applications that include proposals for hands-on work such as building a school, teaching, helping in clinics, or improving local water supply – changing collective lives for the better.

 The Club may make one or several awards each year. Eligible students should apply by the end of February at the latest. Full details and an application form are available from Club secretary Paul Simons on 01483 284193 or pandasimons15@yahoo.co.uk
