Bursaries available for the 2020 Summer School:
BCLT 30th Anniversary Bursaries
BCLT is offering two bursaries to celebrate the Centre’s 30th Anniversary. These £400 bursaries are open to translators that are on a low income or that specifically require some extra financial support. We would like these bursaries to make it possible for two translators to attend that may not have had the opportunity otherwise. These bursaries are open to all workshop strands, including Training the Trainer. Participants that receive one of the BCLT bursaries can attend free of charge if non-residential or for £300 if they would like a full residential place. Applicants my write a 300 word statement on their application about why they should be considered for a bursary.
National Centre for Writing Bursary
National Centre for Writing (NCW) is offering one bursary to a UK-based BAME (Black, Asian or Ethnic Minority) literary translator who would like to take part in any of the workshops (including Training the Trainer) at the 2020 International Literary Translation and Creative Writing Summer School. The £1000 bursary will cover the cost of travel and fees for participation. You will not need to submit a separate application form to apply for a bursary, as there is a tick box on the main form. If you are applying for the NCW bursary, you will also need to include an example of something that you have translated recently. This can be a short extract of your choice that is no longer than 400 words.
French-English Workshop Bursary
All translators accepted onto the French workshop will receive a £400 bursary. Therefore French workshop participants can attend free of charge if non-residential or for £300 if they would like a full residential place. These bursaries are kindly supported by Pro Helvetia. These bursaries are only available to those applying for the French-English workshop. You will not need to submit a separate application form to apply for the bursary. All French-English applicants must submit a sample translation with their application form. This must be no longer than 400 words and both the original and the translation must be submitted.
Pro Helvetia are also funding travel bursaries for all of those taking part in the French-English workshop. These are for up to £100 per translator. These do not need to be applied for.
