Quondam Travel Scholarship 2023

The Quondam Travel Scholarship 2023 is open for applications for alumnae aged 25 and under, and current Sixth Form pupils. Applications must be received before 19th May.

Sixth Form pupils and alumnae aged 25 and under are eligible to apply for the Quondam Travel Scholarship. The £1000 scholarship gives preference to applications involving elements of education or service to others. The scholarship aims to help those who are in education or in unpaid or poorly paid employment, who wish to broaden their education and experience by travelling abroad.

Last year, Quondam awarded two scholarships to Class of 2014 alumna Hanna Bayoudhi, and Devina Loomba, who left Francis Holland in 2020.

Hanna, a Civil Engineer, embarked on a trip to Liberia where she worked to provide infrastructure support (assisting with the construction of tracks and bridge structures) to facilitate transport for communities during the rainy season, when flooding poses a bigger risk. Liberia is one of the most underdeveloped nations in the world; the main beneficiary of the trip will be the rural communities who will be connected to markets by track construction. 

Devina, who is currently mid-way through an undergraduate degree in Anthropology, travelled to Spain last summer, when she volunteered for a programme run by IVHQ, called Youth Support volunteering. Devina worked in after-school centres for disadvantaged communities helping with homework, mentoring, teaching English, and leading summer camp activities. 

• All applicants should send a completed application form to Quondam@fhs-nw1.org.uk with the subject line "Quondam Travel Scholarship Entry"

• The deadline for the scholarship is Friday 19th May 2023

• To apply, please complete the application form, here: Travel 2023.

• Please note that you can only be awarded the scholarship once.
