Post 16 Bursary

Introduction

The 16 to 19 Bursary Fund was introduced in the 2011 to 2012 academic year. It is money the government has given to local authorities, schools, colleges and other education and training providers (institutions) to give to disadvantaged students. Its purpose is to provide financial support to help students overcome specific barriers to participation, so they can remain in education.

There are 2 types of 16 to 19 bursaries:

  • a vulnerable bursary of up to £1,200 a year for young people in one of the defined vulnerable groups

  • discretionary bursaries that institutions award to meet individual needs. For example, transport, meals, books and equipment

Education institutions are responsible for managing both types of bursary.
