At the suggestion of long-standing LNU member Jane Ostler, the Executive Committee awards bursaries of up to £250 to any LNU member who wants to attend a course to improve their knowledge of a specific scientific class. To be eligible for consideration:-
- The applicant must be a member of the LNU;
- The additional knowledge so gained must be applied to the study of the class concerned in Lincolnshire;
Applications for the bursary (which may not be awarded every year) should be made in writing to Executive Committee member Richard Chadd, who holds the honorary post of Visiting Fellow in the Faculty of Health, Life and Social Sciences at Lincoln University.
