People from all over the world, of all ages and backgrounds, have been informed, inspired and encouraged to act by our transformative courses for sustainable living.
You can help to inspire the next person by investing in Inspired by You – The Schumacher College Fund
In 1991 Schumacher College opened as a centre where new ideas about ecology, environment and spirituality could be studied in a radical way, a place where people could be trained in holistic learning and holistic living.
We want to offer the opportunity to experience this transformative experience to as many people as possible, particularly at this time of economic, ecological and social uncertainty. We would like to offer an equal opportunity to students who are in most need of a bursary.
Because of this we have started the Inspired by You fundraising campaign.
“The Schumacher bursary scheme gave me a real opportunity in a place on the Natural Building course which covered such a breadth of information with an inspiring level of integrity. It was quite a unique foundation to take me further into work in this field. I can’t thank you enough for giving me this opportunity.”
Heather Scott, Natural Build Certificate 2012
“I wouldn’t have been able to be here if it wasn’t for the scholarship funding, and truly, it’s difficult to express in words the feeling of what it means to me, but the personal growth and experience that I have had in the short time I’ve been here has been really transformational.”
“I am here to learn magic: the magic for healing myself, healing other people, and healing Nature. Being empowered by my experience here, I wish to spread this magic by promoting holistic education for Nature back in China where people are facing an urgent spiritual, environmental and social crisis, and to heal the mind by restoring the Earth.”

The College encourages participation from all economic backgrounds and to support this we have a small bursary fund for our short course programme. We try to ensure that our financial assistance helps those most in need and be shared amongst as many applicants as possible. It is limited to those who can demonstrate a strong case for attending a course and without financial assistance could not do so.
Applications are viewed on a case-by-case basis and unfortunately we are unable to enter into discussions of any decisions. We have many more applications for bursaries than we can grant at the present time.
Bursary funding is only available for some of the courses we offer. It is used to cover the cost of tuition, accommodation, food and field trips, it does not cover travel or incidental expenses.
If you would like any help with a short course bursary application process, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Where possible, the College can accept deferred payment if that is an option for you. For administrative reasons, instalments should not be spread over more than one year and should each be of a reasonable size (150 pounds sterling or more).
It is not possible for the College to accept offers of work in lieu of course fees. All routine work is shared by staff, course participants and volunteer helpers.
Scholarships are occasionally offered through specific funders and trusts. These will be advertised on our website when they are available.
Please fax, scan or post these documents as we require signatures.
Applications for financial assistance must be made with reference to a particular course and submitted at least 6 weeks prior to a course.
In exceptional circumstances applications will be considered after this deadline.
Please note that an application for financial assistance does not guarantee you a place on the course.
Recipients of financial assistance will be asked to:
