International Challenge or Adventure: e.g. Build Tanzania or Kilimanjaro Trek

In order to be eligible, the student must:

    • Verifiable evidence from the supporting organisation of completion of the pre and actual activity in full (e.g. verifiable records of pre-activity training, on-site photographs/social media posts and a confirmatory email or certificate form the supporting organisation).
    • A video log, social media profile (or a 500 word case study) that summarises the personal impact, learning and development associated with the adventure/challenge and how it has influenced your future personal and/or career goals.
