Reopening of nominations for the 2023 Ronnie Robinson Bursary

Reopening of nominations for the 2023 Ronnie Robinson Bursary

Tai Chi Caledonia was founded in 1996 to allow the people of Scotland and beyond to have the opportunity to work with high level instructors, offering a range of styles and approaches to Tai Chi Chuan, Qigong and other Chinese Internal Arts.

This was the vision of Ronnie and Bob when they founded this event way back then. This vision continues and to foster this spirit, and to ensure that Ronnie’s name continues to be synonymous with Tai Chi Caledonia, we are introducing the annual Ronnie Robinson Bursary.    

It is appreciated that sometimes life can in many ways get in the way of our practice; in these times of austerity this is perhaps more true than ever it was. The Ronnie Robinson Bursary will provide one place at Tai Chi Caledonia each year for which the successful student will pay nothing.

This Bursary will cover the cost of a full week’s training, food and accommodation at Tai Chi Caledonia.
Unfortunately, the person who was due to receive the 2023 bursary can no longer join us, and so we are reopening nominations.

The process will be for anyone aware of someone who they believe would be deserving of this to put a case forward for them on the form in the link below (with their permission, of course!). If we do not know you then you should also attach a summary of your internal arts history and your place in it.

We are not listing criteria for qualification here as no doubt, whatever we thought of, you would come up with some scenario that we had missed. Suffice to say the relevant word is “deserving”, not just someone you know who would like a freebie!
