Travel Bursary Claims

If you have been awarded a travel bursary, here's how you claim your expenses back.

Applications for Travel Bursaries are now closed for 2022.

If you have been awarded a travel bursary in July 2022, you should have received an email from the Arts Emergency team. You can still be reimbursed up to £75 for travel expenses related to Arts Emergency from now until the end of your mentoring year - until January 2023.

Please make your reimbursement claims using the form below.

If you have a question please read our Travel Bursaries FAQ.

The form to claim a reimbursement is at the bottom of this page. To make your claim, please read through these details:
