The Trust bursaries are to be awarded annually to applicants requiring financial assistance, in order to pursue projects on Birds and other Natural History subjects, which are of scientific and conservation value, through the media of writing, photography, painting or illustration.
The application form should be completed and returned, along with any other relevant material, to aid the Trustees in assessing the suitability of your projects, please try and limit ‘relevant material to no more than 3 extra pages. All applications should be returned by 30th September. All applicants will be notified of the Trustees decision by December 31st, and the bursaries will be paid to successful applicants when required.
The Trustees recognise that their bursaries, of up to £750, may form only part of the total finance required for the project. Under these circumstances applicants are requested to specify other sources of their funding and define what area of the project that the award would be spent on.
Successful applicants will be asked to acknowledge the Eric Hosking Charitable Trust wherever possible and provide a copy of any written report to the Trust and a copy of any published results. In the event of a project being cancelled, after an Eric Hosking Charitable Trust bursary has been awarded, all funding received must be repaid.
We look forward to receiving your application and should you require acknowledgement of receipt of your application, please enclose a stamped addressed envelope. Applications made online will be acknowledged by email.
