How to apply
CAITLIN’S KICKSTART AWARD
CKA was founded in 2001 to provide financial aid to successful Ludlow College applicants in their first year of higher education. CKA has traditionally provided cash awards of £1,000 to successful applicants. Since its foundation as a registered charity, the Trustees have gifted more than £55,000 to recipients of CKA. The Award depends entirely for its funding on the generosity of the community. We receive no help from governmental agencies.
Who can apply?
Any student in any field who plans to continue formal education in the next academic year can apply. Students planning a gap year can apply the year after they leave college if they provide proof of their UCAS / Apprenticeship / Higher Education application. Moneys are awarded once students have formerly began their studies.
What do you need to do?
- You will need one sheet of A4 paper to tell us what you want us to know about you—your life thus far, your hopes, dreams, favourite activities and hobbies, contributions to life at Ludlow College and elsewhere—and how you think the award would help you with your plans. Please do not use the Personal Statement you composed for your UCAS application.
- You are also invited to submit a piece of original work which represents your life dreams. It might be a picture, a poem, the lyrics to a song, a DVD or power point, a model or mood box or story—something you care about creating. Criteria are deliberately flexible and wide-ranging.
Remember to include:
- Clear personal and contact details including:
- Your full name and date of birth
- Postal address
- Landline and mobile numbers
- Email address
- Names of your personal tutor and subject teachers
- A photo of yourself
- A copy of your UCAS personal statement
- One sheet of A4 paper telling us about yourself (see point 1 above)
- Your piece of original work (see point 2 above)
- Don’t forget to put your name on each item you send in!
