Post 16-19 Bursary

At Woolwich Polytechnic Sixth Form we offer the 16-19 Bursary for our students that might be facing financial hardship. We know that the cost-of-living crisis has been a real struggle for some of our students, so we encourage them to come to us for guidance and support.

We have a weekly bursary for:

  • A young person in care 
  • A care leaver 
  • A young person in receipt of income support or Universal Credit in your own name
  • A disabled young person in receipt of both Employment Support Allowance and Disability Living Allowance or Personal Independence Payments 

Also, a termly bursary for 

  • Employment and Support Allowance; 
  • Income Support; 
  • Income-based jobseekers Allowance; 
  • Child Tax credit (not working tax credits) 
  • Support under Part 6 of the Immigration Asylum Act 1999; 
  • Pension Credit Guarantee, and be in receipt of Child Tax Credit above the basic family element 

What other things can the bursary help with?

  • Education school trips
  • Resources for education e.g. text books
  • Travel support
