The Trustees are the Vice-Chancellor (who delegates to the Finance Office), the President and the Chair of the WHA. Applications are sought in the spring of each year and all residents are emailed about this opportunity by the Residential Life Team.
Grants of up to £1000 per person (for overseas travel) or £600 (for UK travel) are normally available and projects must have an educational or philanthropic dimension. Applications are also accepted for educational courses, whether or not these involve travel (i.e. online courses are quite acceptable). The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the WHA's ability to support overseas travel.
It is a condition of acceptance that grant-holders must write a short report on their benefits and achievements for publication in the WHA's Yearbook, ideally with photographs where appropriate. We hope to make some of the reports from recent years available on this site, too.
