IHBC South Branch is keen to encourage all our members to attend the school. Each year, the branch funds one place on the Full School out of our annual branch subsidy. The bursary includes one Full School place, and a contribution towards travel costs to and from the annual school up to the value of £60 or the cost of a return second class rail ticket (whichever is the lower).
If you are a Full or Affiliate Member of the IHBC, working towards Full Membership, and you qualify for reduced IHBC membership as either a student member, retired member or concessionary member you can apply to be entered into a draw for the South Branch bursary as long as you:
- Would be willing to write a report on your visit to the school, to be circulated to Branch Members and posted on the IHBC South Branch webpage
- Are not already be receiving any other bursary to attend the school (e.g. IHBC national office bursary)
- Are not be eligible for funding from another source (e.g. employer contributions toward attendance)
Application forms will be circulated to all branch members by the end of February 2014. To apply, simply fill in and return the form by 30th March 2014. Please remember to indicate which tours and activities you would prefer for the Thursday afternoon and Saturday morning in your application.
All applications received will be put into a hat and a winners drawn at random, and the successful applicant will be notified by the end of the first week of April 2014.
