THE PEREIRA AWARD: Autumn Applications


1 November 2017

Applications are invited for the autumn round of the Pereira Award. Applications are reviewed by the committee of Old Oratorians twice a year in October/November and in April/May and awards are made soon afterwards. All activities must be planned for a future date: awards cannot be made retrospectively.

Types of Gap Year endeavour or activity suitable for an application include:

  • Pioneering adventure or expedition
  • Travel grant
  • Charitable activity
  • Language or other cultural study abroad

What is required of the winner(s) :

  • A written report of the activity/trip for the OSS website and for The Oratorian magazine
  • A talk given to the school
  • Photos for the website and for future Pereira Award material
  • A short presentation at the next Annual Dinner where possible
  • Provision of receipts of major expenditure as proof of genuine spending of the award money
  • Where relevant, a piece of Oratory School clothing should be taken on the expedition and photos provided of this.

Old Oratorians should fill in the form in the Members area.

Current Upper Sixth Formers who wish to apply for Pereira Award funding for an upcoming Gap Year should get an application form from the Oratory School Society Officer, Mrs Dora Nash whose office is in the Library, and fill it in and return it to her.
