The FA’s Bursary scheme provides up to £600 to support under-represented groups to access Level 3 courses, and is open to female, and Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic coaches.

See the FAQ’s below


Successful applicants will be awarded a bursary of £600 toward the full cost of The FA Level 3 (UEFA B) in Coaching Football.

The bursary does not offer a guaranteed placement on a course. Bursary recipients are still required to apply for courses in the same way as non-bursary candidates.

This bursary is for female coaches and coaches of Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic origin.

The next application period will open in Summer 2018. To be among the first to find out when the application period opens, register your interest in the bursary programme here.

The application period is normally three months from when it opens.

Once the application process has closed a member of our bursary team will be in contact within four weeks of the applications process closing.

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.

If you are not a member of The FA Licensed Coaches’ Club but would like to be, you can join now for free at facc.thefa.com
