Wolfson Bursaries - Hospice Staff

Closing date:

Wolfson Foundation

The purpose of the Wolfson bursaries for hospice staff is to improve the quality of care given to the patients in need of hospice and  palliative care, and to their families and carers. 

The programme aims to support the professional development of individual staff, significantly increasing their expertise in the work they do, rather than training or updating them in the basic skills needed for their role.

Bursaries can be used to cover fees for university accredited palliative care courses including degree, masters and PhD level programmes and modules from the same. Some palliative care conferences may also be included.

Eligible individuals

All applicants must be working in an eligible organisation as either a:

  • Nurse
  • Healthcare Assistant
  • Doctor
  • Allied Health Professional
  • Social Worker.

Eligible organisations

  • Hospices that are members of Hospice UK.

We encourage matched funding to be committed by the hospice or raised from another funder.
