BE BOLD GRANT


We are delighted to unveil a new-look grant which extends the support of LEH well beyond the classroom, to encourage and champion our alumnae undertaking new endeavours.

In the spirit of the school motto, Hope Favours The Bold, we invite former pupils looking to take on a new challenge to apply for the Be Bold Grant 2023. Grants will be awarded by the AAG (Alumnae Advisory Group) which is made up of volunteer past pupils who represent a range of age and experiences.

The aim 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.

The Be Bold grant is open to an enterprising former LEH student, of any age, who would benefit from the support of the LEH alumnae community to explore a new interest, undertake a special project or to try something different, with a focus on social impact or giving back to the community.

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 to set out why you need the funding along with a breakdown of how you’d put the money to use. If you’re successful we ask recipients to keep us updated about their project and 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.

Awards may be up to £1000 and, if successful, we ask that you post a short write-up of the project to share with the Holles Connect community.

Good luck!
