KGV BURSARY FUND
Following the Government’s decision in 2011 to discontinue Education Maintenance Allowance (‘EMA’), the Department for Education announced the creation of fund called the ‘16-19 Bursary Fund’. This fund is fully administered by the College and is designed to help young people facing financial hardship stay in full-time education. Currently, students who are eligible for the bursary may also recieve support with College organised trips and free school meals.
Details of the current KGV Bursary Fund can be found here: KGV Bursary Guidance Notes
Prospective students will receive a bursary application pack early August before they enrol at KGV. Current students can collect an application pack from the Finance Office.
Please be aware - the eligibility criteria and amounts payable for the bursary are reviewed on an annual basis and may change for 2017/18. All current and prospective students will be informed of any changes as soon as they are made.
