Please note that for most bursaries the maximum a group can be awarded is 50%, and individuals are unlikely to be awarded a bursary greater than 75%. Guests who are in need of financial assistance are welcome to apply for a booking at any time of the year.
Previous bursary recipients are allowed to apply again for a bursary after 12 months, but are unlikely to be awarded a bursary at the maximum percentage. Previous receipt of a bursary does not mean that you will be automatically eligible to receive one in the future.
If you’d like to be considered for a bursary, please call us on 01598 763221 to book a provisional date and to request a bursary application form.
Please note: One of the key criteria to be eligible for a bursary is financial need. We are therefore unable to award a bursary after a booking has already been paid in full.
All bursaries listed here are only available for guests staying at Calvert Trust Exmoor, and are to assist directly with the cost of the stay. Unfortunately, we can’t offer bursary support for travel costs or other associated costs.
