Gloucestershire FA Grassroots Coaching Bursaries

The Gloucestershire FA have funding initiatives set up to support our aim of increasing diversity among qualified coaches in Gloucestershire.

If you’re a female coach and/or a coach from a Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic background (BAME), then this may be your first step towards a new chapter in your coach education journey. 

The bursary is open to anyone with interest in coaching who meet the diversity criteria. 

Current FA Level 2 in Coaching Football Bursary: £100.

Current FA Level 3 (UEFA B) in coaching Football Bursary: £600.


Please note: Submitting an application does not guarantee you a bursary. Once we receive your application then we will be in touch and will inform you if you have been successful or not.

No. Due to volume of applications, we are unable to provide feedback on an individual basis.

Once you have found the course you would like to join, all you are required to do is follow the standard application process.

As soon as all applications have been processed, a member of The FA Education Operations team will be in touch to let you know whether or not you have been successful in gaining a place on the course.

If you have been successful, you will receive a confirmation email that includes a unique booking link where you can pay using your bursary.

Yes. FA Licensed Coaches’ Club members are already eligible for discounted course costs, which means the bursary’s contribution will be towards a lower figure than non-FA Licensed Coaches’ Club members.
