16-19 Bursary Fund

In March 2011, the Government announced a new 16-19 Bursary Fund scheme to provide financial assistance to those young people who face a financial barrier to continuing in education or training post-16.  The scheme has been put in place as a partial replacement for the Education Maintenance Allowance, which closed to new applicants on 1st January 2011.

The 16-19 Bursary Fund has been allocated by the Education Funding Agency (EFA), the funding agency for 16-19 education and training.

Please see the 16-19-bursary-policy-16-17 which sets out the arrangements for how the Kendrick School will prioritise and administer the 16-19 Bursary Fund in 2016/17.

The School is committed to ensuring the Fund is used to support financially disadvantaged young people taking up or continuing in their education or training post-16 and achieving their learning aim(s).

The deadline for applications is 30th September 2016. Please see the 16-19-bursary-information-for-parent-carers-16-17 and 16-19-bursary-information-for-students-16-17 for more information which explain who is eligible and how to apply.
