‘Torch Trophy Trust bursaries provide financial support to individuals or groups wishing to undertake training to enhance their knowledge or improve their coaching skills to assist their club, organisation or community and develop their chosen sport.’
BURSARY APPLICATIONS FOR 2017 ARE CLOSED
A limited number of bursaries are granted by the Trust each year. Applications can be made if you are:
- A voluntary provider.
- Seeking to improve a skill that will benefit the local community or group to which you are affiliated.
- Your governing body wishes to assist but cannot provide adequate funding for your chosen activity.
- Under 25 years old.
- Wishing to gain a Level One coaching qualification.
Bursaries range from £100-£500 and must not account for more than 50 per cent of the total costs of any course or activity.
Applications are encouraged from all parts of the UK and from all sports including those for people with a disability and young people. Any application must be supported by an official letter of endorsement from either a regional or national governing body. Applicants may be requested to supply evidence of a full reporting method to ensure a Bursary award would be used for the purpose intended. Successful applicants will be expected to provide the Trust with an update on the use of Bursary funding.
