Disbursement Policy

Applicants for support from the Bursary Fund shall submit their requests prior to or simultaneous with the reservation/booking using the form available on the website of the Highbury Centre.

A discount shall only become final if the remaining balances due to the Highbury Centre have been settled in a timely manner.

Such discount will be charged to the Bursary Fund and can only be granted if it has sufficient funds available.

The management shall decide whether the applicant qualifies and what percentage discount will be made available from the Bursary Fund. In case the support to applicants of the same Qualifying Event would amount to more than £2,500 the Chairman of the Board of Trustees will be consulted.
