The BBA aims to financially assist those who would not otherwise be able to fund the training by awarding bursaries for the 40 week Boat Building course and the 12 week Furniture Making courses.

To be eligible for the BBA Bursary you must:

  1. be a British Citizen
  2. have been offered a place on the 40 week Boat Building course or the 12 week Furniture Making course

Overview of the bursary application process:

  1. Request a bursary application form from the office.
  2. Return the completed application form to the office before the deadline.
  3. If your application meets the eligible criteria, you will be interviewed by the Director and at least one other Trustee. This will take place either in-person or via video conference.
  4. You will then spend at least one day at the Academy part of an assessment visit.
  5. The Director and at least two other trustees will then decide whether to award a bursary, and what amount will be awarded.

The number of awarded bursaries in each financial year, as well as levels of funding available, will impact whether applications are successful; or what amounts are awarded to each applicant.
