Awards and Bursaries

NatSCA would like to offer a number of bursaries for members towards the cost of the AGM and conference. There is a limited amount of money and this year the Committee is offering two bursaries of up to £250 each. This sum may be set against your travel and accommodation costs. The bursary also allows a free place at conference.
