2017/2018 Bursaries

We are excited to announce the second year of the Wells Angels WI Bursary Award! Fancy getting your learn on? Read through the guidelines below, fill out an application form, and you never know, it could be you! 

To apply for and be awarded a Wells Angels Bursary you must be a full or dual member of Wells Angels WI. 

For 2017/2018 a sum of up to £300 is available. This can be awarded to one individual or to a group of members i.e. one member could do a course which costs up to £300 or a group of members could all do the same course with a total cost for all participants of up to £300. If the course costs in excess of £300, the recipient will be required to make up the difference.

Applications must be submitted by 30 November 2017. To apply, please complete an application form, which you can download from right here, and email your completed form to info@wellsangelswi.com.

The Wells Angels WI Committee will form a shortlist from all applications. The shortlisted applications will be voted on by Wells Angels WI members at our January 2018 meeting. The application which receives the most votes will be awarded the bursary. Any members of Wells Angels WI Committee who wish to apply for the bursary will be excluded from the shortlisting process.

On being awarded the bursary, the recipient has a maximum of 12 months to complete their course and feed back to the group in the form of a skill share, workshop, presentation or other format.  The format of the skillshare must be agreed before the bursary is awarded. If the recipient of the bursary leaves Wells Angels WI before feeding back to the group, the cost of the bursary will be reimbursed by the recipient to Wells Angels WI.

Bursaries for Wells Angels WI members are available for a course or activity which is defined as educational, learning or personal development. A bursary can include travel costs but cannot be solely put towards travel.

Payments for bursaries will be arranged with the Treasurer and must be discussed prior to a course being booked.

If you have any questions about the bursary scheme, please talk to a committee member or email info@wellsangelswi.com.
