SO FAR WE HAVE REHOMED HENS

Student Bursaries

How our Student Research Bursaries review process works

Applications are accepted all year, with two closing dates after which they will be considered: 31st August and 31st January. Applications will be made through the student’s university and must be submitted as a Word document to info@bhwt.co.uk with the subject heading ‘Student Bursary Application’ by midnight on either of the closing dates. Please read our Terms & Conditions carefully in advance. You will be asked to sign these should your application be accepted. The Application Form should be accompanied by the following:
  1. The curriculum vitae of the student. This should extend to no more than two pages.
  2. A summary of the research to be conducted (no more than 500 words).
  3. A summary of how the research will benefit pet hens (no more than 300 words).
  4. A letter of support from the proposed supervisor, which should include confirmation that the project can be carried out in his/her department, and that the student will receive the necessary training and supervision. The supervisor must also comment on the feasibility of the project and its benefit to the student.
  5. Approval from an Ethical Review Committee.
The Grants Review Committee will discuss each application at its spring meeting, and students will be notified of the result by the end of the summer term. Successful applicants will then be invited to provide a start date for the project, and the bursary will be paid to the university.
