16 - 19 Bursary Fund

What is the Access Bursary Fund?
The access bursary fund (PSAAB) is a scheme to help students facing financial hardship to stay in full-time education.

The scheme is made up of two parts:
Guaranteed Bursaries
Those most in need will be eligible for a bursary of £1,200 a year. This includes young people in care, care leavers, young people receiving income support (or Universal Credit), and disabled young people receiving both Employment Support Allowance and Disability Living Allowance (or Personal Independence Payments).
Discretionary Bursaries
Other students who need financial support to help them to stay in education or training may also be able to claim a bursary to help with costs of transport, food, equipment or other course-related costs.
