The FA Grassroots Coaching Bursary


FA Grassroots Coaching Bursary open for applications

The FA has opened the application process for the next FA Grassroots Coaching Bursary – an initiative, designed to support aspiring coaches from under-represented communities to take the next steps on their coaching pathways.

Jointly supported by Sport England the programme provides female coaches, as well as male coaches from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds with a financial contribution towards their FA Level 3 (UEFA B) in Coaching Football course.

The FA Grassroots Coaching Bursary is a funding initiative set up to support our aim of increasing diversity among UEFA B Licence qualified coaches in England.

The bursary is open to anyone with Level 2 coaching who meets the diversity criteria.



The application process is now open and will close on 18 September 2017.
