Torch Trophy Trust - Coach Bursary Fund is now Open

Torch Trophy Trust bursaries provide financial support to individuals or groups wishing to undertake training to enhance their knowledge or improve their coaching skills to assist their club, organisation or community and develop their chosen sport.'

A limited number of bursaries are granted by the Trust each year. Applications can be made if you are:

  • A voluntary provider.
  • Seeking to improve a skill that will benefit the local community or group to which you are affiliated.
  • Your governing body wishes to assist but cannot provide adequate funding for your chosen activity.
  • Under 25 years old.
  • Wishing to gain a Level One coaching qualification.

Bursaries range from £100-£500 and must not account for more than 50 per cent of the total costs of any course or activity.

Applications are encouraged from all sports including those for people with a disability and young people. Any application must be supported by an official letter of endorsement from either a regional or national governing body.

Bursary applications will close on May 31st 2018 at 12:00 (N.B. this may be brought forward at the discretion of the Trustees)
