However, we realise that travelling to London to take part can be cost-prohibitive for some students. That’s why the IEA has started an Oxbridge Training Day Hardship Fund to help cover travel expenses for A-level students who need a bit of help getting here.
Students must apply in advance of the programme with the amount they are requesting and a short paragraph about why they would benefit from attending the Oxbridge Training Day. The maximum grant available per student is £100. The grant can be used for train and/or coach travel but unfortunately not air, car or tube. Receipts for travel will need to be presented at the event and students will be reimbursed directly into their bank accounts after the Training Day.
The application deadline for grants relating to our 2017 Oxbridge day was 9am on Wednesday 13th September.
