The Burford Rugby Scholarship
in association with Capgemini
Our Burford Scholarship in association with Capgemini has been set up to make rugby accessible for all women and girls, regardless of their financial circumstance. We believe the program provides a positive structure, supporting women and girls’ development both on and off the pitch. Acknowledging that some players may not have the available funds to apply for a place at our camps in the conventional way, we have created this fund so that parents/coaches can apply on behalf of a daughter/team member to obtain a scholarship. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to attend future camps within their local area with all fees covered.
Any females between the ages of 7 and 18 can be entered for the Scholarship Fund. Our decision is based on the reasons put forward in the application form, as to why the player is being nominated and why they would benefit from the fund.
All applications will need to be made on behalf of the player at least 14 days before their camp is due to commence or special depensation. The Scholarship fund can only be awarded following the assessment process. This assessment will be carried out within 14 days of submission.
