Bursaries, scholarships and awards
Students in higher education can apply for money directly from their university or college on top of any other student finance - you don’t have to pay this money back.
Each university or college has their own rules about bursaries, scholarships and awards, eg:
- who qualifies
- how much you can get
- how to apply
Bursaries are like grants and don’t have to be paid back. You get your bursary directly from your university or college.
Note: Talk to your student support service to find out what’s available.
Leaving local authority care
If you’ve been in local authority care, you can apply for:
- a one-off bursary of £2,000 from your local authority
- a bursary from your university or college
