The Peter Gordon Lawrence Bursary

Striving for Equal Access - Financial Assistance

Following the death of Peter Gordon Lawrence (PGL's founder) in August 2004 the Peter Gordon Lawrence Bursary was set up.

The bursary has attracted additional support from various fundraising efforts, corporate events and personal donations.

Monies from the bursary are used for the sole purpose of assisting children who would benefit from a PGL course, but whose family are unable to pay for it.

Awards from the bursary apply only to PGL trips in the UK and Northern France. Regrettably we are unable to accept applications for our ski and overseas adventure holidays in the south of France and Spain.

To ensure a good spread of opportunity, we limit funding to a maximum of 10% of the pupils in any one school group and we ask for evidence that they are genuinely deserving cases. Wherever possible, we expect there to be a parental contribution and / or some funding from the school or other sources. We ask for these and other details on the bursary application form, so that we can make a fair assessment that financial assistance is justified.

Please note that bursary applications need to be received at least 12 weeks prior to course commencement, to enable funding to be shown on the school’s account prior to your balance payment date. We will let you know the result of your application as soon as possible after receipt.
