Post 16 Bursary

The Government has set aside some money for schools, colleges, training providers and local authorities to allocate to young people who need financial support to stay on in further education or training. This is called the 16-19 Bursary Fund.

It could help you with any education-related costs that may arise during the school year, including essentials like a meal during the day or transport to school. Alternatively, you might need extra help to buy additional books, clothing, or equipment for your course, or to pay for educational visits. 

To apply for a bursary, you must be aged between 16 and 19 and in full-time or part-time further education or training.
