Bursaries available

We want to extend a warm welcome to anyone who is drawn to visit our island for one week or a longer stay.  We appreciate that not everyone can afford to come on one of our Retreat Weeks and so we happy to be able to offer some financial support, thanks to the generosity of donors to our Erraid Bursary Fund. 

We are able to offer bursaries of up to £250 / person.  If successful we would expect you to be willing to share some of your experience at the end of the week so that we can use it to provide feedback to donors and to encourage more support for the fund.  This could be used in social media, on our website and in direct communications to our donors. 

Please contact us by email if you wish to apply and we will send you a short application form (email address: erraid@live.co.uk).  This gives us an insight into your personal circumstances and what you are seeking from spending time here in our community.  We will use your application to make a decision on whether we are able to support you through the fund and will make a decision within two weeks.  You can use your bursary to come at a time that suits you and will stay, like all our guests, in your own cottage for the first two weeks. 

We also welcome Work Exchange guests if you wish to be fully engaged in outdoor practical tasks during your stay.  So that might also be an option for you.

We look forward to hearing from you.
