Apply for your grassroots coaching bursary

The Grassroots Coaching Bursary is a funding initiative set up to support our aim of increasing diversity among UEFA B Licence qualified coaches in England. Those wishing to apply have until Tuesday 1 May.

Funding is provided for female coaches and/or coaches from Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic backgrounds (BAME). The bursary is open to anyone with Level 2 in coaching who meets the diversity criteria.

All applicants to the bursaries must also be over 18 years of age and a resident of the UK.

Applications are for funding towards The FA Level 3 (UEFA B) in Coaching Football only and are solely relevant to this round of funding. The FA Coaching Bursary is very popular and total applications often exceed the total funding available.

Submission of an application should not be considered a guarantee that you will receive a bursary.

The bursary is strictly limited to 100 male and 100 female coaches.
