Bursaries


The Leacross Foundation/R.Bern bursaries support women and children interested in furthering their education. Each bursary is directed through the specific not-for-profit organization involved. In some cases, the recipient might make a contribution to the organization as part of their commitment in the process.

In many cases, the beneficiary will have an opportunity to meet a representative from the Leacross Foundation, and possibly act as a role model for future applicants.
