16-19 Bursary Fund
This scheme was introduced by the Government to help students study. Contributions and payments ‘in kind’ have been made to students to help with their individual identified needs, such as:
• Stationery costs and packs
• Books and revision guides
• Educational trips/residential trips
• University Open Day visit costs
• Employment/apprenticeship opportunities
Bursaries are available to students in the following categories:
Students who are identified by the government at ‘most vulnerable’ will be eligible for a guaranteed bursary of £1,200.
Family income is below threshold for working tax credits/free school meals.
Students who have an extreme financial barrier, mitigating circumstances and/or a short-term specific educational or independent living cost.
Applications will be issued during Summer 2018 for students to return on Enrolment Day.
