Criteria for Bursaries

To apply for a Bursary please read the following criteria:-

  • To make sure as many people as possible can benefit from bursaries, applications will be restricted to one training course from one borough.
  • Applications should be made either prior to or during the process of applying for the course in order that, assuming you are successful, there is a seamless process from offer to acceptance. Ideally you should know whether your application has been successful before you receive the offer. You will then have the financial support in place enabling you to accept the offer.
  • Priority will be given to applicants born in, or who reside, in the boroughs of Camden and Clerkenwell and Islington. Residents from other boroughs are still invited to apply.
  • Priority will be given to applicants who are in receipt of state benefits (applicants who only receive Child Benefits are not legible), who have low income (of £250 per week or less) or who are registered unemployed (but do not receive state benefits).
  • Applicants who do not meet these criteria, but feel they can demonstrate why they need financial support, are encouraged to apply.
  • Students in full-time, further or higher education are not eligible for bursary places.
