We have currently allocated all of the funding for in the 16-19 Bursary Fund for 2018/2019 and therefore we are not accepting new applications at this stage.
Please do still apply for Free College Meals and for the Vulnerable Bursary (for Care Leavers, Looked After Children and young people in receipt of Income Support/universal Credit and students in receipt of ESA & PIP/DLA.)
We will keep your application on file in case we receive further funding later in the year when we will contact you. Advanced Learner Loan & 19+ bursaries are unaffected and we are still processing these.
