The 16 to 19 bursary supports the most financially disadvantaged 16-19 year olds and those young people who need help with the costs of staying in education. The fund maybe applied for at any stage during the year but must be applied/reapplied for each academic year.
A large proportion of the bursary is used to pay for home to college transport, school meals, residential trips and other college outings.
The bursary may also be used to fund equipment to help with studies examples of which are specialist glasses, dyslexia pens and cameras. Any generic equipment such as dyslexia pens, laptops camera’s etc. reverts to college property when the student leaves.
