Apply for a Bursary

We are proud to offer a Financial Assistance Award through the Eileen Nesfield Cookson bursary fund. This is available for individuals who do not have the means to attend certain events and courses at Hawkwood.

We aim to be inclusive and supportive towards people who can’t afford the full course fee, but as the Eileen-Nesfield Cookson Bursary Fund is a limited resource so we ask your cooperation with the application process. This requires an applicant to read the terms and conditions and consider what they could afford towards the course, which is then discussed with Alicia Carey, Principal, and CEO.
