Bursary Guide – the Officers Association Scotland

To celebrate its Centenary, the Officers Association Scotland is offering a Bursary Award to support currently serving or former officers in expanding their learning in order to enhance their employment opportunities.

This grant is designed to enable self-development, to achieve and progress in that career you desire. It can be used for a specific training programme, Higher or Further Education.

The scheme provides financial support in the form of a single payment per year direct to the learning institution. The length of Bursary support will be assessed at the application stage and then reviewed at the end of each year. Consideration may also be given to study costs such as learning materials and childcare; however, this will be on a case by case basis.

To be eligible to apply for this bursary you must be:

· Men and women who have at any time held a commission (regular or reservist) with any branch of the naval, military or air forces of the Crown, and allied nursing services, and who are resident in Scotland.

· Planning to undertake training/education within a Scottish Institution

· Able to demonstrate that this learning will enhance your employment opportunities

For your application to be considered at the September review please submit all documentation by 28 August 2020
