Enterprise Educators UK (EEUK) has established the Bursary in memory of their former Vice-Chair Dr Richard Beresford. Richard had a deep commitment to supporting the personal development of colleagues working in enterprise and entrepreneurship education.

Cobweb Information supports the Bursary scheme by funding one bursary each year - we are very grateful for their support.


To support the personal development of enterprise and entrepreneurship educators and practitioners, to positively contribute to their practice and to share the story of their learning experiences with the wider EEUK membership.

Who can apply?

You must be employed by an EEUK member organisation and should have been an enterprise educator or practitioner for no more than 5 years. Directors of EEUK are not eligible to apply. Full terms and conditions are at the bottom of the application form.

How could the Bursary be used?

The Bursary could help you to engage in a personal development opportunity that you could not otherwise do so. This could include but is not limited to attendance at conferences, visits to other institutions to share models and knowledge of good practice in enterprise education, course fees that are relevant to enterprise education practice.

How will I share my learning with the EEUK membership?

After spending the Bursary, you will be required to write a 500 word blog and create a 90 second video to be shared with the EEUK membership to show what you have learnt and how you will embed the learning in your practice.

How much can be applied for?

A maximum of £500 per application will be awarded to a small number of applicants every year. Match funding is welcome but not mandatory.

When is the deadline?

The next deadline is Friday March 16th 2018.

How do I apply?

You apply using a simple form (see below) and 90 second video pitch. A panel of EEUK directors will assess all applications.
