How to apply:
The Sir Francis Chichester Trust has funds to send about 30 young
people each year so places are very limited.
The majority of places are allocated in the spring each
year for courses running that summer.
Application forms need to be submitted to the
address on the form and those who are shortlisted are
invited to interview and places are then allocated based on the
needs of the young people and the available funding.
Applications for courses in 2013 are now being accepted.
The bursaries cover the entire course fee for either a one or
three-week course, but you will need to fund their travel to the
centre (though the Trust will occasionally help with this).
You need to complete an application form including a brief
comment as to why you want to attend an Outward Bound
course and also get a reference from someone
who knows you and can give an indication as to why you deserve
here to download the application form.
