16-19 Bursary Funding

Financial Support

What is the 16-19 Bursary Fund?

The Government has set aside some money for schools to allocate to young people who need financial support to stay on in further education or training. This is called the 16-19 Bursary Fund.

It could help you with any education-related costs that may arise during the school year, including essentials like a meal during the day or transport to your school, college or training provider. Alternatively, you might need extra help to buy additional books, clothing or equipment for your course, or to pay for educational visits.

Who is eligible to apply?

To apply for a bursary, you must be aged between 16 and 19 and in full-time or part-time further education or training. There are two types of bursaries:

1.Vulnerable Student Bursary

Students could receive a Vulnerable Student Bursary up to £1,200 if they:

  • Are in Local Authority care or have recently left Local Authority care

  • Receive Income Support or Universal Credit in their own name

  • Receive Disability Living Allowance or Personal Independence Payments in their own name as well as Employment and Support Allowance.


​2. Discretionary Bursary

You can apply for a discretionary bursary if you aren’t eligible for a vulnerable bursary, but you need financial help to stay on in further education or training.

The discretionary bursary is allocated to students who need support to overcome financial barriers that might prevent them continuing in full time education. This bursary is for students whose families are in receipt of a qualifying benefit or who have been affected by a sudden, exceptional change in financial circumstances.

What next?

Applications may be made at any time during the academic year, but as there is a limited amount of funding available for discretionary bursaries all such applications will be subject to the availability of funding at the time of application.
