Scholarship Opportunities for Children this Summer

Scholarship Opportunities for Children this Summer

We're looking for enthusiastic young people aged 10-17 to join international students on the Millfield English Language Holiday Courses through the English Mentor Scholarship.

The courses offer international students the opportunity to improve their English and experience all that Millfield has to offer. The scholarship programme was first introduced in 2012 to maximise the use of English among international students during the courses. This is encouraged through the friendships they make with mentors who model spoken English. The scholarship programme also enables mentors to learn about different countries and cultures, whilst helping them increase their confidence and enhance their own communication skills.

Along with the international students, English Mentors get to enjoy the school’s facilities and extensive social programme, with big events on-site including a rock festival and summer fete. They also attend twice-weekly excursions such as trips to theme parks and city tours.

Bethan, who has been a Mentor for the past six years, has said, “The experience is truly one of a kind, a brilliant and unforgettable way to spend part of your school holiday. The memories you gain on the courses will last you a lifetime.”

Those who apply for the scholarship will need to be available for two consecutive weeks between Sunday 7th July and Sunday 18th August on a residential basis. To find out more about the scholarship click here
