Veterinary nurses made aware of bursaries
The BVNA is making veterinary nurses aware of the bursaries available to help its members with training and further study across the UK.
BVNA Council member Stacey Bullock feels the bursaries remain “relatively untouched with little or few applicants”.
“Feedback from former successful beneficiaries has confirmed that they had to do their own research into available assistance,” she added. “It has become apparent that there are many opportunities for financial grants or bursaries. Each one with their own terms and conditions but none the less beneficial to the individual.”
Applicants to the following three bursaries must be BVNA members and all applications must be received by 31 May.
BVNA Educational Bursary: Up to £500 is available to help veterinary nurses or students with the cost of training or furthering their veterinary nursing education.
The Kennel Club Charitable Trust Bursary: A fund of £3,000 is available to help with the cost of veterinary nurse training. This may be course fees or other costs of an educational nature.
The Kennel Club Charitable Trust Degree Bursary: £3,000 is available for one degree student, to be distributed equally over a period of three years to help with the cost of veterinary nurse training. This may be course fees or other costs of an educational nature.
