16-19 Bursary

Introduction

16-19 Bursaries replace the Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA) for young people in 16-19 education. Funding to provide bursaries will be allocated directly to schools and other 16-19 education providers on an annual basis and they will be expected to administer the allocation of this funding. Schools will have a duty to provide bursaries to students who are identified as most vulnerable at a specified rate but have discretion over allocating funding to other students depending on their individual needs.

Aims
• To support access to post-16 education where there are financial barriers to continued learning.
• To ensure that most vulnerable students receive their bursary entitlement

Principles
• To adhere to the eligibility criteria and definitions of ‘most vulnerable’ detailed in the YPLA guidance
• To award discretionary bursaries through a fair and transparent system
• To allocate funding based on individual need
