You could get a bursary to help with education-related costs if you’re aged 16 to 19 and:
- Study at school or college (not university) in England
- Are 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.
Types of bursary
There are two 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.
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 is used for.
