Bursary funding

The Foundation Bursary was introduced to support young people to enter into and to stay in a positive destination. Our bursary partners include our 3 year funded partners who work directly with young people. They review applications and manage the distribution of the bursary, working directly with young people in their communities.

The Foundation does not accept direct requests for bursary funding.
