If a Bursary Award is made, it is on the condition that the member of staff has first explored/applied to all alternative funding sources and that these have either been unsuccessful or if secured, they do not cover the full cost of the course fees.
The amount of funding awarded depends on the score given to the application, the number of applications received and overall level of funding available. The total funding available to an individual is capped. As such, any Award made, may not cover the full course fees.
The Bursary Scheme is also available on a year by year basis subject to the availability of funding. As such, if a course lasts more than one year, there is no guarantee of continued financial support and employees are advised to make provisions for this when applying.
