Ifield Community College administers a bursary fund to support students who are aged between 16 & 19 and who are facing financial difficulties or have a low household income which mean they are experiencing barriers remaining in education.
Eligible students could receive a half-termly allowance which can be used to buy materials/equipment for their course.
Students may also receive funding for one-off costs such as travel/ bus fares or IT equipment,
Each application is dealt with on an individual basis, ensuring the specific needs of each student are addressed. Two types of bursaries are available – the guaranteed ‘vulnerable’ bursary, and the discretionary bursary.
Please note, all discretionary bursary payments are subject to availabilty of funds.
