16-19 Bursary Fund Guidelines for 2023-24
These guidelines apply to students who are aged 16, 17 or 18 on the 31st August 2023.
What is the 16-19 Bursary Fund?
The 16-19 Bursary Fund aims to help 16 to 19 year-olds overcome any financial barriers they may face when attending a sixth form or further education college.
There are two types of Bursaries available:
This is an award for students who:
- receive Income Support or Universal Credit in their own name, or
- receive Employment and Support Allowance or Universal Credit and either Disability Living Allowance or Personal Independence Payment in their own name, or
- are care leavers or currently care
Discretionary Student Bursary:
The School also received funding to help students who do not qualify for a Vulnerable Bursary but who face genuine financial barriers (where the annual household income is less than £30,000) by contributing to transport costs, course costs such as meals, books and equipment. The award may not meet 100% of your costs.
