ONLA Awards

ONLA Awards

We want to maintain a relationship with our students far beyond their time at the School and, where possible, we would like to support them in their future endeavours, whatever their stage of life.

We therefore offer two types of bursaries which are open to all ONLs, regardless of age.

Academic Awards

Awarded funds can be used for aspects of further education such as:

  • Help towards an MA or a other further education course
  • Help towards a particular piece of research work or retraining course
  • Help towards travel costs for overseas academic research or academic paper presentation

Travel Awards

Awarded funds can be used towards the cost of travel abroad, with preference being given to

  • Those undertaking a charitable mission
  • Those supporting charitable causes where NLCS is already involved
