Open Awards is a registered charity and we seek to use our skills, experience and qualifications to promote learning to individuals. In offering bursaries we are seeking to address barriers that may prevent people from accessing training/further education.

Our Vision is that Open Awards bursaries allow learners to access learning/further education by providing financial support where the qualification is not fully funded and/or to address specific barriers that are currently preventing them from studying.

What can I apply for funding for?

  • Course fees (where these are not funded or fully funded)
  • Travel costs
  • Childcare/other care costs
  • Textbooks and/or equipment, where these are not provided or freely available
  • Support in nominating leaners for awards or recognition
  • Other expenses that prevent someone from accessing learning
