A Helping Hand from LEH

Applications are now open for our new Be Bold Grant 2023, which is open to any alumna running a business or project which gives back to the community or has a positive social impact.

The new-look grant, which replaces the Emerging Talent Award, hopes to extend the support of LEH well beyond the classroom, and to encourage and champion our alumnae undertaking new endeavours which help others.

The recipient of the grant is decided by the AAG (Alumnae Advisory Group), which is made up of nine former pupils, who between them represent our remarkable community of former students, with the most senior member from the Class of 1955 right through to the youngest from the Class of 2010.

APPLY FOR THE BE BOLD GRANT HERE

The Be Bold grant aims is to uphold the school ethos which encourages pupils to have the confidence to try something new, to step beyond their comfort zone and risk failure in order to learn and grow.

AAG member Vivienne Hay, from the Class of 2010, says: “We’ve been very impressed by the high standards of applications for the Emerging Talent Award in recent years, but many of them were looking for funding for academic endeavours or professional development, which can often be supported elsewhere.  We wanted to encourage a more enterprising spirit with a focus on social impact or giving back to the community, more in line with the ethos and original purpose of LEH. The AAG is really looking forward to seeing what this new focus brings this autumn.”

Each year we hope to make one or two grants available, up to a maximum of £1,000. Applications are made by completing the online form, describing why you need the funding, along with a breakdown of how you’d put the money to use. We ask recipients of the award to keep us updated about their project and to write a story about how things turn out, and what they learned.

We are accepting applications now and the deadline for submissions is Friday 3 November 2023. We look forward to hearing your fearless plans.

If you have any questions, please email us at alumnae@lehs.org.uk.
