BSS Bursary Scheme

Bloomsbury Summer School runs a modest bursary scheme, offering unfilled places on our summer courses to those who would find it challenging to pay our course fees. We are able to offer a small number of applicants places for £250 per course, which is £90 less than the full fee.

Eligible students who wish to join the scheme are welcome to do so. You need only email or send in a brief statement of your wishes, putting your chosen courses in order of preference. You may apply for as many courses as you like. All you need do after you have sent in an application is try to keep your diary clear of important engagements for the relevant week(s). The process of awarding bursary places usually begins in May.

There is of course no guarantee that a bursary place on a given course will arise at all, and even when bursary places do become available, they sometimes do so rather late in the day, as a consequence of last minute student cancellation.
