16-19 Bursary Fund
If your family is on a low income or in receipt of benefits you may be eligible for financial assistance from the 16-19 Bursary Fund. This fund is provided by the government but is administered by schools and colleges who also set their own assessment and allocation criteria.
At Sir John Deane’s we prioritise transport costs as these can often be substantial. Our aim is to cover all your transport costs if you qualify for support from the Bursary Fund, although we cannot guarantee this until we know how many applications we receive each year. We also aim to provide support with the cost of books and materials and trips and visits that are linked directly to your course.
Students who are in care, a care leaver, living independently and receiving Income Support or Universal Credit or receiving DLA or PIP as well as ESA or Universal Credit can apply for a Vulnerable Bursary of up to £1,200 per year.
The bursary application system is now open for current students only.
We will update this page for students looking to join the College in September 2024 in the spring when the new guidance becomes available.
Please read the guidance notes available below to help you with your application. If you are unable to use the online bursary system or have any queries please contact the finance department at the College or email email@example.com
