The Bursary scheme normally opens for applications in May and is awarded in April the following year. Sadly we made the difficult decision not to award a Bursary in 2021 - there were many reasons for this - all of them related to COVID-19. We are planning to run the scheme again in 2022, all being well,  we will be opening for applications  in May 2021.
