NGS Super Scholarship Awards 2020
Six scholarships across three categories
From 2020, we’ve updated our award categories and criteria. There are two ‘focus’ categories, with an emphasis on areas that we are passionate about as a Fund, plus a general category that will cover any applications that don’t fit into these categories.
- Navigating life: young people today — from school age and on — face challenges across all sorts of spheres. Whether it’s negotiating the world of social media, learning how to start themselves on the right financial footing or other life skills — what strengths can you help them develop? As an example, one of our past winners is working on an immersion program that teaches students to turn what they believe to be losses into lessons, helping to create resilient young people.
- Sustainability: it’s a focus for our Fund and for the world at large. Is there something you can contribute in the education sector? Sustainability encompasses many areas, including everything from a simple kitchen garden in a school through to ‘citizen science’ projects that will help our young people become leaders in a sustainable future.
- General: tell us your idea! Past winner Trish Weekes created a free online literacy program for teachers, while Diana Webster undertook a program with Limited Resources Teacher Training (LRTT), a global education social enterprise, that allowed her to contribute her skills and passion to a school community in Uganda.
This award goes to the highest scoring applicant across all categories.
What our judges are looking for
We’re looking for ideas that:
- are both inspiring and achievable
- make the best use of the funds on offer
- have longevity – will your project set up something that many will benefit from, for an extended time?
Please note that all winners will be asked to provide a report on their project when they complete it. Terms & conditions apply.
