In the past, the City of York Branch of the Embroiderers’ Guild awarded a Bursary  to a student from the Yorkshire and Humber region postcode area, undertaking a degree course in textiles.  Priority was given to students intending to include embroidery or other surface embellishment with stitchery.

There were no successful applicants in 2014/15 or 2015/16 and it has been decided to consider whether money set aside for the bursary could be used to support the study of embroidery in a different way. Details will appear here in due course.
