16-19 Bursary Fund
16 to 19 Bursary Fund
The 16 to 19 Bursary Fund provides financial support to help students overcome specific barriers to participation so they can remain in education.
There are 2 types of 16 to 19 bursaries:
· a vulnerable bursary of up to £1,200 a year for young people in one of the defined vulnerable groups.
· discretionary bursaries which institutions award to meet individual needs, for example, help with the cost of transport, meals, books and equipment.
To be eligible for either type of bursary students must:
· be aged over 16 and under 19 at 31 August 2016.
· meet the residency criteria in EFA 2016 to 2017 academic year funding regulations for post- 16 provision.
Students who want to apply for support from the bursary fund should inform the Sixth Form Team at the start of the academic year.
