Lecturer Bursary


British Horse Foundation Lecturer Bursary 2019

The British Horse Foundation (BHF) is offering a Lecturer Bursary for a 3-year period, including support for a minimum of three student dissertations through this period. For example, the bursary could provide an opportunity to build up multiple projects under one thematic area or a series of projects that combine to make a publishable piece of work, allowing the lecturer to develop their knowledge in an area.

The lecturer supported will receive a bursary of £1,000 each year for 3 years, and the benefit of support from Trustees of the charity, and mentors, as appropriate.
