In addition to this sum, up to £5,000 is available annually to be distributed by way of supplement among successful applicants for Major Scholarships, or Exhibitions, who are affected by serious disability and demonstrate financial need. Applicants wishing to be considered for such assistance must state the nature of the case in the appropriate section of the financial statement incorporated in the general scholarships application form.
There is no closing date for applications for scholarships but as awards are made for those undertaking the BPTC or Pupillage you must have an offer of a place on the BPTC before your application can be considered.
Please apply before your course commences.
