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. Sometimes you can get one-off payments to cover study trips or travel for
university interviews. The amount you can get varies depending on your situation but it could be up to £1,200 a year. You apply through school, at the start of your studies, and will be informed of whether or not you are eligible as soon as possible.
