Bursaries to Support the Professional Development of Hospice Staff (England, Wales, the Channel Islands & the Isle of Man)

Bursaries are available to help hospice staff in England, Wales, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man improve the quality of care given to patients in need of hospice and palliative care, and to their families and carers.

The Masonic Charitable Foundation Bursaries for Hospice Staff will support the professional development of individual staff, significantly increasing their expertise in the work they do, rather than training or updating them in the basic skills needed for their role.

All applicants must be working in an eligible organisation as either a:

  • Nurse
  • Healthcare Assistant
  • Doctor
  • Allied Health Professional
  • Social Worker
  • Bereavement Counsellor
  • Administration Staff (HR, Finance, Fundraising)
  • Spiritual Care Worker
  • Pharmacist
  • Complementary Therapists.

Bursaries can be used to cover a maximum of 50% of university accredited course or module fees, up to £1,500 in any one year. Match funding is encouraged.

Applications can be made at any time until all funding is exhausted.
