Bears Bursary Scheme
After the success of our first ever Edgbaston Sleepout, we wanted to make ensure that we as a Foundation were doing something tangible to support youth homelessness.
The Bears Bursary was created in recognition of the need to support amazing young people in their fight against adversity to see them progress to higher education with the aim of improving their life chances.
We recognised that getting to university was a great achievement, but some of the issues they encounter may be compounded. The Bears Bursary has the aim of lifting some of the financial burden and to prevent finances from becoming the barrier halting social mobility for young people who have already overcame many social barriers.
