The Residential Bursary Funding helps with the cost of accommodation for young people attending certain specialist education.

To qualify for funding with a designated provider, the education will require the young person to be resident in order to participate because it is not available locally and/or because it requires students to be available at unsociable hours on a regular basis.

This guide provides information to all institutions receiving 16 to 19 Residential Bursary Fund allocations in 2014 to 2015. Last year’s guidance is also available on this page.
