1966 Mill Lane Award

A group of alumni who matriculated in 1966 wish to offer one or more awards of up to £2,000 to Pembroke undergraduates to enable them to ‘fulfil their full potential’ whilst studying at Pembroke.

The Awards are split into two distinct areas:

  • Up to £1,000 of support will be awarded to help with recipients’ extra-curricular interests while at College, to support them while they pursue contributions principally to College Life, but also for contribution to, and success at, university level.
  • A further Award of up to £1,000 will be available to candidates who are undertaking an internship or other “broadening experience”, which is unpaid, low-paid or requires travelling expenses which are not funded from another source. Normally this activity would be expected to take place during the Long Vacation of this academic year.

(Please note that it is possible to apply for the first part of the bursary even if you do not wish to apply for the second part.)

The 1966 Mill Lane Awards are open to application from all undergraduate students. Applicants should be actively involved in the life of the College and have a solid academic record, regardless of subject.

Students applying would probably – but not necessarily – be expected to be in receipt of a maintenance grant (or at least the means-tested element of the student loan).  This Award offered would be in addition to any other financial support which the student receives.

Successful applicants would be expected to produce a short report for the 1966 Mill Lane Group at the end of the academic year (or the end of the Long Vacation depending on the type of award) to outline how they have used the money and how it has helped them.

Students wishing to apply to be considered for one of these Awards should complete the appropriate application form available online.  Applications should be made by 3 May 2017.  The successful applicant(s) will be informed during the course of the Easter term.
