Money to Learn
Schools, colleges and training providers have bursary funds to help young people who face financial hardship and are in learning.
The 16-19 Bursary
Students most in need in the following groups may receive maximum bursaries of £1,200 for courses of more than 30 weeks:
- young people in care
- care leavers
- young people claiming income support in their own name
- disabled young people who receive both Employment Support Allowance and Disability Living Allowance in their own name
Schools, colleges and training providers are responsible for awarding discretionary bursaries to students, they can decide on the amount, when they are paid, and can set conditions that students should meet to receive a bursary. To find out more speak to the Student Support team or Tutor at the school, college or training provider.Further information can also be found on the Gov.uk website
