Round Square Bursaries

Bursaries now available for RSIS Big Build Projects

The 2016/17 RSIS Project student bursary programme is now open. The total fund available varies from year to year, and is used to support the participation of those students whose circumstances mean that they could not otherwise access a RSIS project. In most cases bursaries will be offered at a level that part-funds or mostly-funds the participation cost of the project, excluding flights. In addition to bursaries from the Round Square Discovery fund, also available are:

  • the Peter Pelham Memorial bursary, which is an endowed fund from which revenues are disbursed on RSIS projects. Peter Pelham was a Round Square Board member and strong advocate of supporting financially disadvantaged schools;
  • the Governors’ Fund, which disburses monies annually to fund bursaries on RSIS Projects for both students and staff of Round Square Global Member Schools. This fund was established by the Governors in 2005.

If students would like to apply for a bursary for a RSIS Big Build project, please complete the attached form and submit it, along with nomination letters to before the below deadlines:
