TRAVEL BURSARIES

We are able to supply travel bursaries for participants! There are a limited number available, however each bursary is for a maximum of $500 to cover the cost of travel for schools. If you have multiple schools in your area it is best to all travel together to save on costs. This will help us cover more travel costs for other schools!
