Bursary Fund 16 to 19


You could get a bursary to help with education-related costs if you’re aged 16 to 19 and: studying at school or college (not university) in England or on a training course, including unpaid work experience.

What we do:

  • 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. 1. Vulnerable student bursary: You could get a bursary worth up to £1,200, depending on your circumstances and benefits.
  • 2. Discretionary bursary: You could get a discretionary bursary if you need financial help but don’t qualify for a vulnerable student bursary. Your education or training provider decides how much you get and what it’s used for.
  • For further information contact the Benefit Advice Service or check GOV.UK website as this information is subject to change.
