Scholarships and Bursaries

BATOD is often approached by teachers seeking funding for various projects.

Unfortunately BATOD has no funds to support such projects. However, BATOD is working with the Ovingdean Hall Trust to provide Con Powell scholarships for up to five teachers wishing to train as a ToD. More information can be seen on this page of our website.

We suggest that members who are seeking funding try the following options:

Several organisations offer independent financial assistance to students who are self-financing. The Educational Grants Directory, by Michael Eastwood and David Casson, published by the Directory of Social Change, is available in most public libraries and could be useful.

In addition, you might find it worthwhile to consult a website entitled Scholarship Search. The address is:
