The Exeter Scholars Travel Bursary

Travel Bursary

Every Exeter Scholars participant will be entitled to a travel bursary to cover the costs of travelling to all compulsory events and activities. 

  • Travel cost will be paid for participating students only, and not for anyone attending events as participants' guests.
  • Receipts are required for reimbursement for any travel by public transport; unfortunately, we will not be able to reimburse travel claims without this evidence.
  • Travel claims will be paid for the student only based upon a maximum of one outward and one inward trip per event.
  • Overnight accommodation or refreshment costs will not be paid for unless advised otherwise.
  • Fuel claims will be paid at a standard mileage rate. For all mileage claims, the first 100 miles of any round trip will be paid at the rate of 45p per mile and the remaining miles will be at 25p per mile. 
  • Please make it clear on your form what event you are claiming travel expenses for, as we will not be able to reimburse the cost if your attendance cannot be verified.
  • One claim form is required per event.
  • Where possible, please ensure that your claim form and any evidence are in PDF format. 

In order to claim your travel costs back, you will need to complete the travel expenses claim form and return it to us either:

a) to, along with scanned copies or photos of any relevant travel tickets / receipts, all in PDF format where possible. 

b) to the addresses listed below, along with any relevant travel tickets / receipts. 

Please note that email is our preferred method of receiving travel claims, so we ask that you use this method if possible. 

IMPORTANT: If you are unable to download and complete the form or if you require a hard copy form for any reason, please contact us at to request this.
