Funding & Bursaries

The full cost of YMLP is £2500. While participants are expected to seek funding for their place on the course, there are a number of bursaries available to cover some or all of the cost of YMLP.

Have you approached your employer to cover the cost of the YMLP course?
Do you have a sponsoring body or access to funding to cover the cost of the YMLP course?
