The BBA aims to financially assist those who would not otherwise be able to fund the training by awarding bursaries.

To be eligible for the BBA Bursary you must:

  • be a British Citizen
  • have been offered a place on the 40-week Boat Building course.

Overview of the bursary application process:

  • Request a bursary application form from the office.
  • Return the completed application form to the office before the deadline.
  • If your application meets the eligible criteria, you will be interviewed by the Director and at least one other Trustee. This will take place via video conference.
  • The Director and at least two other trustees will then decide whether to award a bursary and to 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.
