For the 2019-20 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 £250 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.
