The Jubilee Sailing Trust is fortunate to be supported by various charitable trusts, foundations, individuals and organisations who provide bursary funding to help those who might find it difficult to fundraise for or self-finance their voyage fees. 

Different bursary funds are available throughout the year, and each fund has specific criteria which ties in with the provider’s charitable activities. These criteria could be related to a specific area, age range or community, and are set by the bursary provider. 

If you would like to apply for a bursary, please complete this online form or download the Bursary Application Form. We ask you a few questions to help us determine which funds you may be eligible for.

We’d also like to know why you should be considered for bursary funding, and any relevant information you might think would support your application. You may want to think about what you hope to gain from your voyage, and how this might be beneficial for you in the future.
