16-19 Bursary Fund

16-19 Bursary Fund Application

The 16-19 Bursary Fund is paid by the Education Funding Agency (EFA) to Schools and Colleges. The 16-19 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:

1. a vulnerable bursary of up to £1,200 a year for young people in one of the defined vulnerable groups

2. discretionary bursaries which institutions award to meet individual needs, for example, help with the cost of transport, meals, books and equipment

  • Students wishing to claim from the 16–19 Bursary Fund will fall into two categories. It is extremely important that you decide at this stage which of the two categories applies to you. 
  • Students who believe that they are eligible must apply by Friday 14th October 2016 and must also supply the required evidence to support the application.
