Applications are now being accepted for small bursaries designed to help develop skills that will be used to support wildlife recording in Scotland.
Since 2009, BRISC (Biological Recording in Scotland) and GNHS (Glasgow Natural History Society) have offered bursaries for studying wildlife in Scotland. Costs are awarded for up to £200. SNH (Scottish Natural Heritage) has been contributing to the bursaries since 2017, specifically targeting those aged 25 or under. In 2019 the Inverness Botany Group joined the bursary scheme with a contribution from a member’s bequest, offering funding for courses studying plants in the Highlands. Up to £200 or 75% of the cost of the course, whichever is lowest, is on offer to successful candidates.
The closing date for receipt of completed Application Forms is 31st January 2020.
