16- 19 Bursary - support for education costs

You could get a bursary to help with education-related costs if you’re aged 16 to 19 and:

  • studying at school or college (not university) in England
  • on a training course, including unpaid work experience

A bursary is money that you, or your education or training provider, can use to pay for things like:

  • clothing, books and other equipment for your course
  • transport and lunch on days you study or train

There are 2 types of 16 to 19 bursary.

Vulnerable student bursary

You could get a bursary worth up to £1,200, depending on your circumstances and benefits.  This includes students with disabilities.

Discretionary bursary

You could get a discretionary bursary if you need financial help but don’t qualify for a vulnerable student bursary. Your education or training provider decides how much you get and what it’s used for.

Please see the Gov.uk website for further information.
