Conditions of Bursary:
The Trust will only fund tuition costs as residential and other costs will only be funded in exceptional circumstances.
Trust bursaries are part-bursaries. As such, the Trust does not fund the full cost for any one student.
A bursary may be withdrawn at any stage if academic performance is not satisfactory.
Bursaries are awarded by the Trust in February of each year.
Bursaries are tenable for one year only. It is the responsibility of the student to re-apply for further bursaries by 30 October annually.
Students are required to declare bursaries or awards received from any other sources.
