The College and the Pembroke Players work together to provide support for undergraduates to travel to participate in drama at a high level. Any suitable dramatic activity (acting or directing) is appropriate, though historically most awards have been made either for the Edinburgh Festival or the Players’ own foreign tours. Either two or three awards will be made each year out of the Peter Cook Fund, supplemented by the Players’ own Patron Scheme. Nominations will be made by the Pembroke Players themselves, subject to the College's approval. Applicants will have contributed substantially to the activities of the Players in the past. Grants will usually cover one half of reasonable travel expenses and a contribution towards living expenses. The maximum grant will be either £200 or £300, depending on the number of awards made. Travel expenses will only be paid upon production of receipts, together with evidence of the time spent on location for the per diem allowance. Students will also have to produce individual written reports after returning from their trip.
Application should be made direct to the College Registrar, from the committee of the Players.
