Covid 19 Bursary Fund

We have temporarily suspended our existing bursary schemes as we have set up a new Covid 19 Bursary Fund to assist members experiencing difficulty paying membership fees due to the direct impact of the pandemic.

The presenters for our events generously donate their services and expertise to AOTOS as a charity which keeps our costs to a minimum. If you would like to support this fund, you can click here to make a donation.

More information about how to apply to the fund will be available in due course.
