Each year, Burntwood Town Council awards two annual bursaries of £1000 to talented young people who aim to go on to greater achievements in the arts, sport or academic fields. To qualify for consideration for the bursary, you must be:
- resident within the Burntwood Town Council boundaries (even if you attend a Burntwood school)
- aged between 11–14 or 15-
- able to demonstrate an outstanding level in relation to your activity
The scheme is intended to help to fund additional opportunities and resources, including purchasing specialist equipment or clothing, undertaking research projects, getting extra tuition or coaching, competition fees and travel costs.
The 2017 Bursary Award scheme is now open and applications should be submitted by 30 September 2017.
