The UKCP Bursary is a fund created to support those studying and training to be psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors and who may need financial assistance.
Our aim is not only to help individuals, but to strengthen the profession as a whole by supporting students and trainees from groups under-represented in our workforce, and by enabling those from all backgrounds to complete their studies and contribute to the future of psychotherapy.
The deadline for applications for the 2021 bursary has now passed. If you would like to be notified about the UKCP Bursary 2022 in spring/summer 2022, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the contact list.
COVID-19 has presented challenges for all of us, including our students and trainees. If you are in a position to make a donation at this time, please give what you can to help build our bursary fund.
Every new generation of psychotherapists transforms the profession, and we’re excited to see the future that our current trainees will shape. However, some of tomorrow’s psychotherapists are struggling with today’s circumstances.
If you can, please donate to our bursary fund using the form below or via this link to support UKCP students and trainees in need of financial assistance.
Once the deadline for applications has passed, all the eligible applications submitted will be anonymised by UKCP and shared with a specially appointed UKCP Bursary Panel which comprises:
The panel will meet (online) to assess the anonymous applications and decide which should receive a £750 bursary.
Please see our UKCP Bursary 2021 Guidance for full details about the selection process.
You’ll be notified by email of the outcome of your application and whether you will receive a bursary by Friday, 6 August 2021.
If your application is successful, the award will be paid directly to your training organisation via bank transfer and will go towards the fee for your training. No payments will be made directly to applicants.
Please see our UKCP Bursary 2021 Guidance for full details, terms and conditions.
