16-19 BURSARY FUND APPLICATION AND PAYMENT PROCEDURE 2018-19
A key priority for the Government is to close the gap in attainment between those from less fortunate and more affluent backgrounds, and to ensure every young person participates in and benefits from a place in 16 to 19 education or training.
The 16-19 Bursary Fund targets support towards the most financially disadvantaged 16 to 19 year olds - those who most need help with the costs of staying on.
Please note: All institutions are being asked to review Bursary procedures to bring them in line with new Government guidelines which state that “the Bursary fund is designed to help students overcome the specific financial barriers they face, not to provide set amounts of funding irrespective of actual need”. Consequently, we will be reviewing our procedure for making Bursary payments during 2018-19.
Please contact Mrs Hillson, 6th Form Administrator, if you have any questions.
