The ASA SouthWest County Bursary

The ASA SouthWest County Bursary is open to all volunteers in affiliated clubs that are Swim21 accredited to apply for funding towards any UKCC/ASA course for teachers and coaches for all ASA disciplines.

Bursaries will only be paid on receipt of proof that the applicant has successfully completed the course. For an application form click here – ASASW Bursary

 

DCASA note:

The funding year is April-March and the level of funding available is up to a maximum of £100 for a L1 course and up to a maximum of £200 for a L2 course. However, applicants typically receive the minimum of £50 for a L1 course and £100 a L2 which is then match-funded by Dorset County ASA. Retrospective applications (ie made after the course has been booked or completed) will only be considered if the course took place in the same financial year as the application is made. Application is made via Dorset County ASA and not direct to the ASA SouthWest.

DCASA note:

The funding year is April-March and the level of funding available for UKCC/ASA courses is £50 for a L1 course and £100 for a L2 course. Funding for STA courses is pro rata. DCASA aims to support all applications for funding for teachers and coaches courses when possible, but will not award bursaries to paid coaches or double-fund volunteers receiving support from other sources (excludes funding from applicant’s own club). Clubs/volunteers found not declaring funding from other sources at the time of application will not be eligible to apply for funding thereafter. However an additional bursary may be awarded at the discretion of DCASA, and in particular where applicants have applied for an ASA SouthWest bursary but have only been awarded the minimum amount. Retrospective applications (ie made after the course has been booked or completed) will only be considered if the course took place in the same financial year as the application is made.
