As part of our Social Enterprise mission, we do all we can to keep our programmes accessible to as many children as possible. 15% of children attending The Hive benefit from our scholarships.

Unfortunately, we can’t offer scholarships to everybody. To be in with a chance of securing one, parents must be able to prove their financial hardship. We are able to provide scholarships amounting to 25% – 50% of mission costs.  The assistance awarded is dependent on the criteria detailed below.  If selected, you will be awarded specific mission dates. 


Scholarship applications are assessed against 4 criteria:

  1. Diversity: scholarships are intended to broaden the diversity of life experiences of campers taking part in The Hive.
  2. Economic need: we consider family size, income, and/or extenuating circumstances when making awards. You will need to provide proof of hardship.
  3. Motivation: a written statement from campers and their parents helps us assess motivation during our review process.
  4. Funding: awards are made based on the availability of scholarship funds.


The final application deadline for our 2018 scholarships is 31st May 2018. Awards will be made in the following week and applicants will be notified by Monday 11th June 2018. 

Applications for 2019 scholarships will open in January 2019.
