If you are worried about the cost of Campaign Bootcamp - there are scholarships and travel bursaries available to support you. We know that the very best of campaigners can need some extra financial assistance. We currently offer the following scholarships:
- The Greenpeace Environmental Trust scholarship - for campaigners focused on environmental issues and climate change
- The Susan Cook scholarship for disabled people. This is made possible by the amazing team at Scope.
- The Trust for London scholarship - tackling poverty and inequality in London.
If you're still unsure whether you qualify/should apply for a scholarship, see here for more info.
We're incredibly grateful to the funders who make our scholarships possible. We're always looking for ways to make Campaign Bootcamp accessible to more and more campaigners. See our blog for extra info on the Shami Chakrabarti and Greenpeace scholarships.
