Prospective applicants are advised to read the notes below concerning eligibility before making an application.
Notes on eligibility
- Bursaries will be awarded to individuals who otherwise would not be able to afford the course fees.
- Before applying for a bursary, individuals should have sought funding from other sources. In particular, they should have approached their Parish Priest or the Administrator of their parish.
- Receipt of any bursary money implies that recipients will participate fully in the residential weeks, self-study activities and associated activities of the course. For the diploma, award of a bursary for the second year is dependent on the successful and full completion of the first year.
- We rely on the integrity of the individual asking for financial assistance. Should an individual’s financial circumstances change, meaning that the bursary amount is no longer required, this should be declared to the school so that the bursary funding to them can be adjusted accordingly.
- Due to the very limited amount of funds available, no support can be given towards maintenance costs, just help towards fees.
- Bursary applications need to be submitted together with a course application form or after applying for a course. Bursary applications will not be considered unless a course application has been received.
The Gabriel and Ariel Bursary Fund
This bursary fund has been established by two friends of the School of the Annunciation in memory of two much loved children, Gabriel and Ariel, who died before birth. The purpose of the fund is to assist students to study at the School of the Annunciation, towards which it offers half fees for any of the summer schools or courses. Preference is given to under 30s and to Catholic Clergy. The general conditions for bursaries apply to this fund and the general application form is to be used.
