Bursary information

The NHS Leadership Academy puts diversity and inclusion at the heart of everything we do. Inclusion is one of our four key strategic aims and therefore must be sown across and throughout our work.

 

In offering our programmes, we pay attention to inclusion in relation to both content and how our programmes are delivered. We must also ensure that access to our programmes reflects the richness and diversity of our workforce.

 

To this end, we now have a bursary scheme to support talented applicants who are from groups under-represented across leadership levels and whom, without  the bursary,  would miss out on opportunities to access the excellent quality professional leadership programmes that the Academy  offer.

 

Please note that we have a very limited number of bursaries available; applications for a bursary can be made via the programme application on our leadership community website, NHSx.

 

The bursary scheme is open to those who have exhausted all other possibilities for funding and who also belong to groups that  are underrepresented such as:

 

  • People with disabilities
  • BME
  • Women
  • LGBT

 

These bursaries are limited, and cover the full programme fee including accommodation during residentials, but not travel and some subsistence where that’s not provided as part of the programme.
