Standard Bursary

The Standard Bursary from Bradford College’s Learner Support Fund is for 16 to 18-year-old Further Education students with a gross household income of less than £30,000.

It’s to help you with the cost of studying and is a grant, so you won’t need to pay it back.

You may get help with things like:

  • travel costs to and from College
  • meals in College
  • help towards course-related costs such as equipment, books, exams re-sits and some course trips.

Some of the bursary may be paid in the form of a bus pass, vouchers or equipment instead of cash.

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
  • attend your classes
