Future Tutors Bursaries 2015-16

Bursaries that may be available to those on the Future Tutors programme at the RSN:

Victoria Adams Scholarship Fund

Victoria Adams was a Life Friend of the RSN, born in England she later moved to Canada. She believed passionately in the skills and enjoyment of embroidery and wanted more people to have the opportunity to learn these skills to the highest level at the RSN in order to keep the art of hand embroidery alive. Bursaries for 2015-16 will potentially be available to students on any year of the course and will usually range from £1000. To be awarded a higher amount you must demonstrate particular need.  Previous recipients are eligible to re-apply.

The Worshipful Company of Gold and Silver Wyre Drawers’ Bursaries

This Worshipful Company, one of the ancient City Livery Companies, has a strong affiliation with the RSN as we are one of the few organisations which continue to use gold and silver wire in our work. in 2015/16, in addition to their degree bursaries, they will offer one bursary of £2,000

Worshipful Company of Needlemakers’ bursaries

The Worshipful Company has long been a supporter and gives two awards to RSN degree students. They support us as one of two organisations that make good use of needles: embroiderers and surgeons. This year there is a bursary of £2000 for one UK based Future Tutor who can demonstrate need.

Coats Foundation Trust

The Coats Foundation Trust is the charitable arm of Coats Crafts from which we get Anchor thread and many other stitching accoutrements. We have used their materials since our founding. This is their first award to a Future Tutor student who must be UK-based and able to show financial need. The award will be for £3,000.

In memory of Pat

Pat was an avid stitcher whose skill including making kneelers for her local church dedicated to local families identified by images of the people. A sum of money from Pat's will was dedicated to supporting the next generation of stitchers. There is one award of £2000.

In memory of Wendy Hogg

Wendy Hogg worked for the RSN for more than 40 years and left the School a legacy to provide some bursary support. We also use this fund as a prize for mounting each year. There is an award of £1000 to a Future Tutor who can demonstrate need.

Eva Stokes

Eva is an RSN supporter who is 90. She says that all her Friends are either ‘falling off their perch’ or going on Cruises, she wants to do neither and instead wants to make something happen while she is still alive so she has donated a pot of money that will give us a bursary of £1000 a year for five years. Eva will be visiting the RSN later in the year to hand over her cheque and Future Tutors will be invited to meet her.

Janet Churm

Janet was an RSN Friend who left a sum of money to support both the Future Tutors and the Degree. Bursaries for 2015-16 will potentially be available to students on any year of the course and will usually range from £1000. To be awarded a higher amount you must demonstrate particular need.
