What is the 16-19 Bursary Fund?

The fund is made available from the government through its funding body – the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) for 16-19 year olds – to provide assistance to students whose access to, or completion of, education is inhibited by financial constraints or barriers. The 16-19 year old bursary scheme has been put in place as a partial replacement for Education Maintenance Allowance.
