Shiatsu Awareness Month 2023 Bursary
Shiatsu Society Bursary Scheme
For Shiatsu Awareness Month we are very excited to announce the launch of the Shiatsu Society Bursary Scheme! As a Society we are committed to our Membership and we understand that the last few years may have taken a financial toll. Consequently we are offering a one off £50 bursary to MrSS, SrSS and FwSS Members of SSUK.
The only mandatory eligibility criteria for receiving this bursary is that on application, you must be, and have been a fully paid up Member of the Society for at least two years (unless a new graduate). The bursary will be paid directly to you, the Member, and the Society requires no subsequent ‘proof’ of spend/usage. All we ask is that the money is used in the spirit of the award, the grant being made to fund activities that will, broadly, further awareness of Shiatsu during Shiatsu Awareness Month. We would appreciate you subsequently writing a short account of how you used the money. These summary articles will be collated and shared, anonymously if requested, in future editions of the Journal, the website and/or social media – just to show the range of activities and opportunities out there.
There is a maximum spend on this initiative – we have a pot of £3000 – so the bursaries will be awarded on a first come first served basis, with a limit of £50 per person. Each member can apply once – so please apply asap, preferably before the end of April to allow for processing! If this Bursary proves successful it may be extended and run again in the next financial year.
Shiatsu Awareness Month Moves to June
You may recall that we changed our Shiatsu Awareness Month to coincide with this collective effort of promoting Shiatsu. We are collaborating in the Shiatsu Without Borders month in June, to work together to raise awareness.
