Blockley Award

The Blockley Rowing Scholarship is provided through the kind and generous donations of the Blockley family. It is offered to a promising current member of Lincoln College Boat Club, whether they are a cox or rower, who trials for a university squad and returns to LCBC afterwards to compete for the College. The scholarship can be used to offset the kit and equipment costs entailed by rowing at such an advanced level and ensures that the best coxes and rowers have the financial ability to fulfil their full sporting potential.

To apply, applicants should write a letter to the Boat Club President detailing their previous rowing experience and achievements, their preparations for university trials and their commitment to the club following trialling. A committee consisting of the Men’s and Women’s Captains, the Chairman of LCBCS and the Lincoln College Bursar will then decide who is awarded the scholarship. The decision will be based on the application letter, past experience of the applicant at LCBC and the particular squad with which they are trialling (as some squads have a greater financial cost associated with them). The closing date for applications is Saturday of 3rd week, Trinity Term.
