You may be able to get help funding your trip

There are a number of ways that you may be able to get some funds to help you pay for your trip.

Chris Ellis Award

If you have already done a voyage with us, enjoyed it and want to come again, you can enter the Chris Ellis Award - there's an annual prize of up to £200 off the cost of another voyage for the best diary, logbook, story or picture from someone who has done a voyage with us.
Age limit 12-25.
Deadline is Christmas each year.

Other Bursaries and Funding

OYT South Bursaries

Ocean Youth Trust South itself also has a limited amount of bursary funding available to help people aged 12-25 who cannot afford our full voyage prices.

For more details on all of these funding options, see the main Ocean Youth Trust South website.
