To be eligible for a bursary up to a maximum of £1000, you must be a Sixth Form student at Attleborough High. You should ideally be in receipt of the 16-19 Bursary Fund but this is not compulsory. You must have a dream or ambition that you are passionate about but do not have the necessary funds to pursue. If, for example, you have the dream to become a volunteer or temporary teacher within a third world country, the bursary could help you fund the opportunity to gain the experience you need.
To apply for this bursary, you need to write a letter to the Headteacher and to Philip Bujak. In this letter, you need to explain in detail why you believe you qualify for this bursary and how it can help you to pursue the career or dream you have. AHS Sixth Formers who are interested in applying should click the link below which will direct you to the AHS Sixth Form log-in page where you can complete the form. Your application will then be submitted to Mr McShane for review with the Bursary Panel. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to attend an interview the Headteacher, Head of Sixth and Assistant Headteacher to discuss the application in more detail.
To be successful in your application, your project must be organised through a nationally recognised organisation, body or institution.
Organisations you could look at are:
i to i Volunteering
Voluntary Services (VSO)
Global Volunteer Network
The bursary will therefore act as a part of your required fundraising for the project and as such, the school will only act as a facilitator to enable you to access the bursary as part of the sponsorship required by the organising body.
If your application is successful and you pursue your ambition, you will be required to write an article on completion of your project which will be published on the school's website. You will also be given the opportunity to present a short assembly to the school community.
