The Cirencester College Learner Bursary Fund
Young people who need some financial support to help them stay in education or training after 16 can apply to the college for the new 16-19 Bursary Fund. The most in need will be eligible for a bursary of £1200 a year. This includes young people in care, care leavers, young people receiving income support and disabled young people receiving both Employment Support Allowance and Disability Living Allowance. Young people eligible for income support will include some teenage parents, young people estranged from their families, and those whose parents have died.
Other students facing financial difficulties may also be able to claim a bursary to help with costs of transport, food, equipment or other course-related costs.
