About The Caitlin Hurcombe Kickstart Fund
Caitlin’s Kickstart Award is a UK Shropshire-based charity, founded in 2001. We give financial help to applicants in their first year of further/higher education.
The present Award is a gift of £1,000 to winners; runners-up receive a cash grant of between £100-£500. The Award is not available for a gap year.
As of 2017 we have gifted over £40,000.
In 2014, CKA established two associated 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 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.
Caitlin’s Kickstart Award for Outstanding Achievement is an occasional award offered to applicants/recipients/supporters past and present of Caitlin’s Kickstart Award. Applicants are invited to apply personally. You may also nominate candidates for this Award. The first CKA Outstanding Achievement Award of £1,000 went to Sophie Hayter.
