FE Bursary Fund Application Form

Please complete all required sections of the form. You may be required to present evidence backing up the information that you provide and the College may need to scan or take copies of the originals. This is for auditing purposes and is a Government requirement. This will be retained for a maximum of 6 years plus the current year – after which it will be destroyed responsibly. If you do not wish this to happen then we will be unable to process your application.

Please note that if your circumstances change throughout the year you can submit a new application and this will be considered in line with your new circumstances. Allocations are made on a first come first served basis.

You will not receive bursary funding until you have enrolled at the college. Should you withdraw from your course, your payments will stop.

Applications received by 30th September guarantee full allocation assuming sufficient funds. Applications received after this date will be paid according to funds remaining. Payment will be made on the next available payment run.
