Timeline For the Scholarship
Scholarships will be awarded at the end of the year (Summer term) for the following school year. Planning for each scholarship will involve:
Duration of the Award

What may need to be done to raise funding
Criteria for the Scholarship
As vulnerable children are defined in many ways, and while some may be orphans or homeless, we should also consider poverty and financial need.
We would like to monitor and administer the scholarship annually and have a transparent way of publishing the use of funds. A question I would need clarification on, which organisation best manages the fund: Rural Linkage or Linkage Schools.
