Please note, we do not fund pre-registration masters programmes.
Open to U.K. and international applicants.
We accept applications twice a year. Please look here for dates of the application points and when you can expect to hear if you have been successful in receiving an award.
If you are studying a single module but will use the CATS towards an award, you should apply through this route.
Apply for funding
The first aim in our operational framework is to develop the practice of occupational therapy, this can be achieved through the development of occupational therapists.
The Trust offers funding for masters level study (M level) to registered occupational therapists. Applicants are invited to apply for funding to support up to 60 credits (CATS points) of study. Awards are made based on the merits of each application and the benefits to the applicant, their service and service users and, more broadly, to the profession for those undertaking a dissertation module.
Post-registration level funding includes masters-level certificates, diplomas and full masters programmes accredited by a Higher Education Institution.
