OA Small Grants

The OA Club runs a small grants programme for OAs. Grants are awarded from two funds:

The Personal Fund is open to any individual OAs applying for support of a personal or professional development opportunity. The OA Club interprets professional development very broadly and has previously funded work experience, internship placements and vocational and professional training courses. Gap year projects, medical electives, an OA’s first degree, postgraduate degree, or law conversion courses will not be funded.

The Group Fund is open to all OAs applying as a group to support experiences in sport, music, art, drama, or other collective endeavours.

The OA Club Committee assesses each application on its individual merits, and is open to considering all applications that meet the general criteria. However, preference is generally given to applications from OAs who left Abingdon School within the last ten years and who can demonstrate that the award would make a significant contribution to their ability to undertake the development opportunity.

Application Guidelines

When to Apply
Grants are made annually at the June meeting of the OA Club Committee. Applications should be submitted by 1 May.
