The Cobfriends Bursary Fund
Cobfriends is an independent voluntary organisation that exists to support The Cobweb Orchestra and it's players. The Cobfriends Bursary Fund was set up to offer financial assistancce with the cost of attending Cobweb events.
Applicants will be considered on the basis of financial need as determined by income i.e. unemployed, solely dependent on benefits, students etc.
A bursary may be awarded to an individual once per term. It does not include travel, accomodation or meals.
Alternatively, Cobfriends can pay the annual membership fee (non-taxpayers rate) for an individual thus enabling them to attend rehearsals and events throughout the year at the lower membership rate. This would not preclude them from applying for a bursary the following term.
All applications are in confidence. Applications should be made to either the Chair or Treasurer of Cobfriends. Awards are determined by the decision of at least 2 members of the Cobfriends' committee, one of whom must be either the Chair or Treasurer.
At present the annual sum allocated for bursaries is £200.
