Community Learning Exchange – Travel Bursary
What is it?
CRNS member organisations are invited to apply for funding for learning exchange visits to other community organisations and projects in Scotland.
Visits can be one community/group visiting another, or one community/group hosting multiple visitors – both within the Scottish Community Alliance (SCA) network, or a community group may visit an organisation outwith the SCA network.
Who can access it?
Any constituted group that is a member or aspiring member of one of the networks which make up Scottish Community Alliance. CRNS are members of the SCA.
What do I need to do?
Your group will need to fill in a simple application form and get the form signed off by the person with responsibility for this who is based with your network. Assuming your application has been approved, and you agree to the terms of the grant offer, you then proceed with the visit, pay the organisation who are hosting the visit their agreed fee, and then finally, once the visit has been completed, provide SCA with receipts and a completed follow-up evaluation form
What is the role of the network lead?
The network lead is the person designated by your network to take responsibility for the community learning exchange. He/she will confirm to SCA that your group is known to their network and forward your application to email@example.com for consideration.
What will the Exchange fund?
The Exchange will cover 100% of the costs of a visit by members of one community to another community project up to a limit of £750. Costs may include travel, accommodation (where appropriate), subsistence and a host fee of £300 (up to £500 where the host has multiple visitors)
How do I find out more?
Speak to your CRNS network leads Elaine Richie or Matt Lewis firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com who will confirm your eligibility and can provide you with applications forms and any other info you need.
