Student Finance

16-19 Bursary Information

Bursaries provide financial help to young people aged 16 to 19 who face financial barriers to participating in education or training, provided they meet agreed standards of attendance and behaviour.

Our 16 to 19 bursary scheme offers three types of bursary. Students can only apply for one type, depending on their personal circumstances and eligibility.

Some students, who fall within the definition of ‘nominated vulnerable group’ are eligible for the full £1,200 p.a. bursary. These include young people in care; care leavers; young people in receipt of income support; disabled young people in receipt of employment and support allowance who are also in receipt of disability living allowance.

Other students meeting the financial criteria can apply for assistant and may be eligible for additional support.
