Young carers bursary

This is a weekly allowance to help you with the costs of college. It is available for students who are young carers.


To be eligible for this bursary you should provide evidence from a support agency or medical professional confirming your caring responsibilities.


Eligible students may receive the full amount of £1,200 if they have expenses and study full-time on a course of at least 30 weeks. You will receive less, or no bursary support if your course is shorter than 30 weeks; you study part-time; incur few expenses; or if your Bursary Fund application was received later in the academic year.
