The 16 – 19 bursary fund aims to help close the gap in attainment between those from poorer and more affluent backgrounds, and to ensure every young person can participate in and benefit from a place in 16 – 19 education.
Students from defined vulnerable groups or those experiencing the greatest financial disadvantages and/or course-related costs will receive support from the fund. If your circumstances change during the year you may apply at any time.
Bursary payments are intended to meet participation-related costs only (e.g. transport, exam re-sits, educational visits, books and equipment, university open day visits and interviews) and will be targeted at individual students.
