Bursaries available to Islanders to undertake project abroad

A BURSARY of up to £2,000 could be available to a candidate selected by the Jersey Scientific Exploration Society.In 2012 the society launched a programme to provide a bursary to help a young Jersey person, over 18 years of age, to undertake a worthwhile project overseas and engender in the individual a spirit of adventure. Ideally it should assist in conservation, sustainable development or benefit the people, environment, fauna and flora of a remote area. The Jersey society are looking for imaginative proposals that can be accomplished in a relatively short time, say ten to twelve weeks. The bursary could be made available thanks to the generosity of a local Foundation. Initially applicants should submit a one page proposal and a short CV by 20 March 2014 to: Mrs Kate Davis Secretary Jersey Scientific Exploration Society Email kate.davis@rbc.com
