The purpose of Mango's bursary fund is to improve access to Mango training for poorly-resourced, local NGOs who would otherwise not be able to afford to join us. The bursary fund is limited so this means that we have to introduce conditions on who can apply and how it is used.

or in French: Fiche d'information bourse.
Which courses are supported with bursaries?
You can apply for a bursary for the following courses run in countries outside the UK:
- Practical Financial Management - Getting the Basics Right (FM1)
- Financial Sustainability Essentials - How to Build a Financing Strategy (FM2)
- Grant Management Essentials – How to Keep Your Donors Happy (FM8)
Bursaries are dependent on funds being available for the selected training events.
Who can apply for a Mango bursary?
Mango bursaries are open to staff of local NGOs with limited funding, who meet the entry criteria of the course they are applying to attend. Staff who work for international NGOs do not qualify for the bursary fund as we believe they have more opportunity to find other sponsorship.
Bursary applications are considered on merit. We will give priority to small and poorly-resourced NGOs who are based in the country where the training takes place, and where the training will have greatest impact.
What does a bursary cover?
A bursary covers a certain percentage of the Mango course fee. The amount awarded depends on the annual income of the applicant NGO.
We believe it is important that the applicant NGO makes a contribution to the course fee so that the training is seen as an investment for the whole organisation.
Expected contributions towards the course fees are as follows:
|USD 100,000||GBP 100||GBP 40||GBP 40|
|USD 300,000||GBP 200||GBP 80||GBP 80|
|USD 500,000||GBP 300||GBP 120||GBP 120|
Unfortunately, as our bursary fund is limited and restricted to the most poorly-resourced NGOs, bursaries are not available to organisations whose annual income is greater than USD 500k.
Bursaries are not available to cover the cost of accommodation, per diems or travel. These costs must be paid by the NGO applying for the bursary place.
