The bursaries available cover the course cost and, in some cases, help towards the cost of travel and expenses. They can be used on BIC training courses until the end of 2015. 

Further details of the bursaries can be found below. If you would like to be considered for a bursary, please apply using the application form. Applications will be reviewed by a panel of industry experts in the week commencing 19th January and applicants will be contacted by 30th January.
