Opportunity to win £1.5k bursary open to Ceredigion Youth

Young people in Ceredigion have the opportunity to win a £1,500 bursary to help with their future aspirations.


Following success in previous years, Ceredigion’s Youth Work and Engagement Service is fortunate enough to accept another opportunity generously provided by West Wales Holiday Cottages to support young people with a cash bursary again this year.


The purpose of the bursary is to provide young people aged between 11 and 25 with a chance to receive £1,500 to help with their future aspirations. The successful applicant(s) will be chosen by Ceredigion Youth Forum, which is a panel made up of young people from Ceredigion.


Gwion Bowen, Senior Children and Young People’s Participation Officer, said: “We are very grateful and appreciate West Wales Holiday Cottages opportunity to support young people in Ceredigion again this year. Like ourselves, West Wales Holiday Cottages recognise that many young people living in Ceredigion may experience difficulties in accessing training, support and social activities due to socio-economic issues. The bursary was extremely successful last year, with three young people gaining financial support to help them with their projects. We hope that the bursary is a success again this year, and that it will benefit young people in Ceredigion.


“Do you need financial support to reach your goals? Would you benefit from having financial support to help you with training or equipment that is required for your chosen vocation? Are you looking for support to start your own enterprise? Are you a member of a community group and looking for financial support to purchase resources or equipment? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, apply!”


Councillor Wyn Thomas, Ceredigion’s Cabinet Member for Lifelong Learning and Skills, said: “This bursary is transformative and is designed to empower and uplift young people in Ceredigion. It aims to provide the County’s young people with invaluable financial support, enabling them to pursue their educational aspirations and unlock a bright future filled with possibilities.”


The closing date for applications is midnight on 22 July 2024. If you’re interested, contact Gwion Bowen on 07790 812939 or e-mail Gwion.Bowen@ceredigion.gov.uk for an application form.
