Emerging Talent Awards


The Emerging Talent Awards 2021 are now closed. Applications for 2022 will open next summer.

The Award aims to celebrate and promote the spirit of LEH. The school ethos is to encourage pupils to stretch themselves to become their best, most confident selves; to be supported by strong role models and be inspired by their peers; and to have the freedom to experiment and take on new challenges. To keep those much-cherished tenets alive, we encourage alumnae to nominate themselves, or each other, if they would benefit from the support of the alumnae community.

Awards of up to £1,000 are available to an alumna who has a talent in any field, who is looking to embark on a new project, undertake further professional training, help fund a placement, or is perhaps a business woman or fledgling entrepreneur needing our support. We’re looking to recognise the most deserving Remarkable Women, who have worked hard and have a real capability in their chosen area. And remember - Hope Favours The Bold!

How to apply


Click the button below to download the PDF application form.

Fill in the form and email it back to alumnae@lehs.org.uk.

The deadline for 2021 submissions has now passed. Applications will next open in summer 2022.

Please make sure your online profile on HollesConnect is up to date (and/or that the person you're nominating has updated their profile).

Applications must be made in advance of the project, placement or entrepreneurial endeavour.

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!
