Bursary Schemes at the IGA

    For the 2018-19 Core Training Courses

    As a charity, the Institute of Group Analysis (IGA) is keen to encourage and support people from a wide range of backgrounds to undertake training in group analysis.

    We have a number of bursary funds, often in memory of one of our members, and are able to offer around bursaries of between £300 and £500 each year to prospective or current students and trainees.

    Please see the table below for information about the bursary funds available and a brief overview of the criteria. More detailed information for each fund can be viewed by linking to the appropriate page, where an application form can also be downloaded.

Applications will then be reviewed by the IGA’s Bursary Committee that will make recommendations to the Finance Committee and their recommendations taken to the Board of Trustees. We will aim to inform applicants of the outcome of their applications by 30 September every year.
