The 1916 Bursary Fund 2022/2023
The 1916 Bursary
The purpose of the 1916 Bursary is to encourage participation and success by students who are most socio-economically disadvantaged and who are from groups most under-represented in higher education. In order to be considered for a bursary, applicants must meet College Entry, Financial and Target Group eligibility criteria. Each college has a limited number of bursaries; they will be awarded to the eligible applicants that present the greatest need.
Applications for the 1916 Bursary Fund are now open, Please see the links at the bottom of this page
