The Government bursary scheme is designed to help eligible or vulnerable 16-19 years olds who continue in full-time education. The scheme is made up of two parts – a guaranteed payment to a small group of the most vulnerable, and a discretionary fund for schools to distribute. Full details of the scheme are available here on the Education Funding Agency website.
Calday Grange has funds to help students starting full-time courses in September 2016 who may struggle with the cost of their studies.
Calday Grange 16-19 Bursary Fund
Calday Grange Sixth Form students aged 16-19 who might struggle with the cost of full-time education can apply to receive a Calday Grange 16-19 Bursary in one of two categories:
Students most in need will be eligible to receive a bursary of £1200 a year. This group includes:
- students in care
- care leavers
- students claiming income support
- disabled young people who receive Employment Support Allowance & Disability Living Allowance
Other students facing genuine financial difficulties may be awarded a bursary at the discretion of the school.
Applicants, in either category, for the Calday Grange 16-19 Bursary Fund should read the information about the Calday Grange 16-19 Bursary Fund and complete the Bursary Application Form.
