16 - 19 Bursary
What a bursary is for ?
A bursary is money that you, or your education or training provider, can use to pay for things like:
- clothing, books and other equipment for your course
- transport and lunch on days you study or train
There are 2 types of 16 to 19 bursary:
- a bursary for students in vulnerable groups
- a discretionary bursary
Bursary for students in vulnerable groups
You could get a bursary worth up to £1,200, depending on your circumstances and benefits.
You could get a discretionary bursary if you need financial help but do not qualify for a bursary for students in vulnerable groups. The school decides how much you get and what it’s used for (according to policy)
