The NFWI Constitution includes four charitable objectives. The first of these objectives is:
To advance the education of women and girls for the public benefit in all areas, including:
o political and social issues – on a local, national and international scale
o cultural subjects – such as music and drama
o interest areas – including agriculture, crafts, home economics, science and health
In line with this objective, Ashtead WIng committee have agreed to make available a bursary of up to £100 for a course or activity that is defined as educational, learning or personal development. The bursary is available for one member or can be shared by a few members. If the cost exceeds £100, the recipient(s) will be required to make up the difference.
On being awarded the bursary, the recipient has a maximum of 12 months to complete their course and then feedback at a monthly member meeting. Feedback can be in the form of a skill share, workshop, presentation or another format. The format of the skill share must be agreed before the bursary is awarded. If the recipient of the bursary leaves WIng before feeding back to the group, the cost of the bursary must be reimbursed by the recipient to WIng.
Payments for bursaries will be arranged with the Treasurer and must be discussed prior to a course being booked.
To apply for a bursary: please complete an application form and either submit to a member of the committee or email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
