The 16 –19 Bursary Fund is available to help support young people who may face financial barriers when enrolled in further education. The 16-19 Bursary aims to support further education training providers to ensure that every young person is able to benefit from participating in 16-19 further education. The support further education training providers receive enables them to support young people facing financial barriers to learning, through providing additional financial support to help meet the costs of their participation through the use of a fixed sum from the government each academic year.
As a responsible provider, The University Academy Holbeach places heavy impetus on its accountability to uphold the Governments’ decision to tackle the problem of disadvantaged young people meeting the costs of participating in education and training Post-16 and to ensure that any allocations made are reasonable and equitable.
Students who are eligible must apply for a portion of these funds by completing an application form and by supplying the required original documentary evidence to support their application. Applications and supporting evidence can be submitted via post or electronically to our Sixth Form Student Manager firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications for the current academic year of 2022-2023 continue to remain open for current students. Applications for new students starting in September 2023, will open from June 2023. We will however continue to receive and assess any other applications made after this deadline. All applications are treated in strict confidence and students’ personal information only shared with members of the Bursary committee.
