The 16 to 19 Bursary Fund helps disadvantaged pupils pay for things they need to support their education or training.
Examples include clothes, books, course equipment, transport and meals on the days that you’re studying or working. Sometimes you can get one off payments to cover study trips or travel for university interviews too.
You can apply if you are aged 16-19 and meet certain criteria based on you or your family’s financial situation. The current criteria is that you must be eligible for free school meals.
