Have a fantastic photography project in mind but just can't afford to fund it? Then this section, which outlines details of our bursaries, is for you.
In the boxes below you will find links to information, application forms and past winners for the bursaries that we offer each year.
Additionally, there is funding available for Society Events. This funding is to enable young photographers to attend selected Society Regional and Group events that they would not normally be able to afford. This Young Student Funding is only open to bids from Society Regional and Special Interest Group Organisers. If you would like this funding the first step would be to contact your Region or Group organizer and have a chat with them about the possibility of applying on your behalf.
