Course Bursary Application

The Root Camp Foundation has a generous bursary programme that enables people from all backgrounds, regardless of their financial situation, to attend a Root Camp. We offer both full and partial bursaries. We asses the level of bursary support on a case-by-case basis.

To be considered for a Bursary, you’ll need to provide us with evidence as to why you are eligible for a bursary. This takes the form of:

A short paragraph detailing why you want to come on a Root Camp.


Details of a contact who will support your bursary application, such as a teacher, social worker or any other professional who knows you.

We will get in touch with that contact, and assess your eligibility via their reference, as well as the information you provide us with.

If you think you are eligible for a bursary place on a Root Camp, please fill out the form below.

If you don’t think you’re eligible for a bursary, please fill out the regular application form here.

Please complete the form fully. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us at

Once we process your application, we’ll ask for a deposit to secure your place.

Partial bursaries: the deposit is 50% of the course fee that has been agreed between Root Camp and the participant. The balance is payable six weeks before the course start date.

Full bursaries: the deposit is £75. In special circumstances, this is refundable after the course.

We cannot guarantee your place on Root Camp until your deposit has been received.
