Premium Bursary

The Premium Bursary is part of Bradford College’s Learner Support Fund.

It’s to help you with the cost of studying.

If you are eligible, you could get up to £1,200. It’s a grant, so you don’t have to pay it back.

You need to be one of the following:

  • in Local Authority Care (as defined by the Children Act 1989)
  • a care leaver (as defined by the Children Act 1989)
  • getting Income Support or Universal Credit payments in your own name because you are financially supporting yourself, or financially supporting yourself and a dependent living with you, such as a child or partner
  • getting Employment Support Allowance (ESA) or Universal Credit in your own name and Disability Living Allowance (DLA) or Personal Independence Payments (PIPs) in your own name.
  • 16 or 17 years old and an unaccompanied Asylum Seeker in the care of the Local Authority – if your immigration status has not been settled by the time you are 18, support from the Premium Bursary will stop even if this is partway through your course

You must:

  • be aged 16, 17 or 18 on the appropriate date
  • be enrolled on a full-time funded course
  • show evidence of household income/benefits
  • meet the residence requirement
