OA Scotland Launch Centenary Bursary Award

Centenary Bursary Award

To celebrate its Centenary, the Officers Association Scotland is offering a Bursary Award to support currently serving or former officers in expanding their learning in order to enhance their employment opportunities.

This grant is designed to enable self-development, to achieve and progress in that career you desire. It can be used for a specific training programme, Higher or Further Education.

The scheme provides financial support in the form of a single payment per year direct to the learning institution. The length of Bursary support will be assessed at the application stage and then reviewed at the end of each year. Consideration may also be given to study costs such as learning materials and childcare; however this will be on a case by case basis.

 

To be eligible to apply for this bursary you must be:

  • Men and women who have at any time held a commission with any branch of the naval, military or air forces of the Crown, and allied nursing services, and who are resident in Scotland.
  • Planning to undertake training/education within a Scottish Institution
  • Able to demonstrate that this learning will enhance your employment opportunities

The application form and bursary guidance is available here Bursary process Bursary Application Form   . Please complete this application fully and return it to h.mcveigh@oascotland.org.uk by 1st December 2019.

Please note we are unable to make any retrospective payments for course fees and study materials. This also includes self-funded payments or loans that you may have taken out with a college or bank.

Please note that if you fail to complete the training and or learning the Officers Association have the right to reclaim the bursary awarded.
