16-19 Bursary Fund Eligibility
The Bursary Fund Scheme is made up of two parts:
- Guaranteed Bursary – if you are in care, a care leaver or in receipt of Income Support or a disabled young person in receipt of both Employment Support Allowance and Disability Living Allowance you will be entitled to £1,200. This will be paid to you by instalments.
- Discretionary Bursary – if you do not qualify for the guaranteed bursary but have a household income under £22,000, you may be able to apply for some funds to support things like travel, meals whilst attending the course or course related equipment.
Information regarding this support is provided to students on entry to the Sixth Form College.
