College Bursaries

For the 2016/17 academic year, you can apply for up to 90% of your travel costs or £10 per day (whichever is cheaper), forms available from the InfoZone. Funding is based on household income, where you live and whether you receive any help from any other source.

If you are aged 16, 17 or 18 on 31 August 2016, you should apply to your local council before the College bursary if you meet their criteria.
