Giving promising students a chance
Caitlin’s Kickstart Award is a UK Shropshire-based charity, founded in 2001. We give financial help to Ludlow College applicants in their first year of further/higher education. The present Award is a gift of £1,000 to winners and £100 to each runner-up. The Award is not available for a gap year.
As of 2019 we have gifted over £55,000. 2019’s awards alone totalled £3,600. Alice Riley received £1,000 as recipient of CKA’s Mary Hayter Memorial Award. Lee Jones was awarded £1,000 as the winner of the Amanda Brisbane Memorial Prize. Katie Jones is the winner of the original CKA and received £1,000.
In 2014, CKA added two new Awards: The Mary Hayter Memorial Award is offered nationally to students with a disability who are engaged in full or part time education and who would benefit from a cash grant to to help with project-related expenses. The first recipient of the Mary Hayter Award of £1,000 is Imogen Godwin, who required a Braille-dedicated computer for her course work. Applicants are invited to apply personally. You may also nominate a candidate for this Award.
The Amanda Brisbane Memorial Prize for Outstanding Achievement is an occasional award offered to applicants/recipients/supporters past and present of Caitlin’s Kickstart Award who have been seen to realise their dreams in their chosen endeavour.
