The two bursary award categories will be judged by a panel of senior figures from across the legacy and in-memory sector, with at least two judges assessing each scheme.
Applicants will only be considered for a Legacy Futures Award if:
They are employed by / volunteering in a charity
They agree to attend an online event where the bursary award will be presented to the successful candidate(s)
They are willing to write an article regarding their experience and provide quotes for future publicity materials
They are willing to have their photograph used in future publicity materials, including on the Legacy Futures group company websites.
The Bursary Awards are based on an assessment of the applicants’ experience, performance and potential, using a transparent scoring system agreed by all judges. Bursary Awards will only be awarded to individuals or teams who, in the opinion of the panel, will benefit from the bursary award and who will use it to contribute positively to their organisation in the future.
Crispin Ellison Bursary
The Crispin Ellison Bursary was set up in 2016 to support individuals currently working or volunteering in the charity sector looking to further their professional development, by providing funding to complete legacy management training through the Institute of Legacy Management.
As a partner in the sector, we are committed to supporting the Change Collective Strategy to create an equal, diverse and inclusive profession where everyone is the right fit. We will support the Change Collective’s efforts to ensure that individuals from all backgrounds, including those with protected characteristics are retained and progressed. Bursary Awards will be awarded based on the individual’s own aptitude and ability.
It is important that Legacy Futures is informed of any change of circumstances that affects the application submitted (for example, change of role, receiving funding elsewhere, etc) as soon as possible.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with details of the change(s).
