The 16-19 Bursary Fund is for young people who need some financial support to help stay in education after the age of 16. The Bursary can contribute towards the cost of the bus pass and essential course equipment.
A Bursary of £1,200 a year is available for the most vulnerable students. These are young people who are:
- In care/care leavers
- In receipt of Income Support/Universal Credit
- Have a disability and are receiving both Employment Support Allowance and Disability Living Allowance (or universal credit and personal independence payments).
A Discretionary Bursary is available to any student experiencing financial difficulties.
