The Jim Boyack Memorial Trust 24th Annual Award of £1,800 and a free place at the RTPI Scottish Young Planners’ Conference for planning students in Scotland
The Trust makes an annual award to students of planning in Scotland. Applications will be considered from ANY student that is registered on a planning course accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute. The Trustees will particularly consider the needs that the student states in their application for the bursary. This may include various needs, for example:
- support for family commitments
- support for field trips or other necessary study
- support to lessen the need for part-time working to support their studies
The Award in 2016
The Trustees have received 20 applications from students seeking support to assist them to enter or continue on a planning course in Scotland that is accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute. The award comprises a cheque for £1,800 plus a sponsored place at the RTPI Scottish Young Planners’ Conference, with reasonable travel expenses.
The Trustees will make a decision in November and applicants will be informed of this.
The decision will also be announced in the Scottish Planner.

The Trust aims to invest in tomorrow’s planners by organising an annual award to assist students to enter or continue on a planning course in Scotland. The purpose of the Trust is to endow and provide for the making of an annual award to students undertaking or extending their studies in Scotland of town and country planning.
