Fees and Bursaries

The cost this year will be £350. Final payments are due by Friday June 22nd. Bursary help is available for anyone who needs it. Please do not hesitate to ask.

Members and Attenders of Local Meetings of the Society of Friends should be eligible for bursary assistance from their own Meeting, so in the first instance, please contact the Overseers at your Local Meeting to discuss available support.

If you are not members or attenders of the Society of Friends, we may be able help with fees. If you wish to request support directly from YFHS, please contact us at "yfhssecretary@gmail.com" or via our contact page. To help us with administration, we request that you approach us before the payment deadline in June 2017. We will not be able to make a decision on bursary payments until after this date as our bursary funds are limited so we may need to decide how to share them between applicants. We will do everything possible to meet requests for bursary support.



It is expected that all participants will be present for the whole week. Only under exceptional or unforeseen circumstances will young people be permitted to arrive late or to leave early.
