The 16-19 Bursary Fund
The 16-19 Bursary Fund exists to help students continue with and complete their course where they would otherwise be prohibited from doing so on financial grounds. Effective from September 2011, this funding replaces both the Education Maintenance Allowance and the discretionary Learner Support Funding.
The Bursary is intended to help with the hardship needs of individual students. Its intent is to enable a learner to continue with his or her education and generally, awards will be used towards essential course related costs such as books, equipment, travel, field trips, visits and other costs associated with living and learning.
