Our objective is to support people who would otherwise find it difficult to start a career in the book trade, particularly due to difficulties with affording the cost of attending interviews or undertaking internships. This particularly applies to people outside of London, who need to get to London for interviews and to temporarily live in London for internships though we will also fund travel and subsistence costs anywhere in the UK. We can also cover the costs of purchasing appropriate clothing.

We offer financial support to help cover the costs associated with attending interviews and undertaking internships.  In addition, we can offer support whilst undertaking study or professional development, including Masters programmes, though this would not normally include the cost of courses or tuition.
