JCI UK have four bursaries available, each being £75, to grant to members to cover part of the cost of attending our award winning National Leadership Academy, LEAP (Leadership Excellence in Action Program) in August 2016.  This is a highly thought after national academy that has trained over 100 JCI UK members since it was first launched back in 2012.  Don’t just take our word for it – check out what previous delegates have said here.

Please find below the terms and conditions of applying for a bursary, and what you need to consider before applying.

The bursary application form is a GoogleDoc, and can be found by clicking this here. If for any reason you are unable to open the link, please contact Mark Smith 2016 National Finance Director who will arrange to send you the application form in a different format for you to complete and return.
