A bursary[1] is a monetary award made by any educational institution or funding authority to individuals or groups. It is usually awarded to enable a student to attend school, university or college when they might not be able to, otherwise. Some awards are aimed at encouraging specific groups or individuals into study.


Many colleges will ask students to make a bursary application online. Other colleges will require a paper application form. Evidence to support an application will always be required. Evidence documents may be scanned copies or photographs of documents but they must be verifiable and accepted by the college before a student will have their application approved. Some colleges will only allow paper versions of evidence. Examples of financial support provided by colleges in England are as follows. This list is not exhaustive; it is based on the awards provided by over sixty colleges in England (in 2020).[4]

To obtain such a bursary, it is customary for the student or their parents or guardians to be asked to provide details of their financial circumstances, supported by documentary evidence. The amounts awarded in Scotland,[5] for instance, are made on a sliding scale, with household income below 34,000 p.a. (as of 2020) attracting awards. The application will be considered by the awarding organisation according to its published conditions although appeals may be considered from applicants in special or extenuating circumstances. The award will usually cover a specific period and may be given as a lump sum or on a declared schedule. Most bursaries are reviewed annually to ensure that the justification for an award remains. Changes in circumstances or study conditions such as a change of course during the academic year may result in the bursary being varied or stopped altogether.

Who: International students (classified as 'overseas fee paying') who has a direct family connection (family is defined as sibling, parent, child or spouse) to a student enrolled at Kingston University ('current student') or to a student previously enrolled at Kingston University (alumni). Both family members are entitled to receive the bursary if they are studying at the same time.

Who: International students (classified as 'overseas fee paying') who previously participated in a Study Abroad, International Summer School, or Exchange programme at Kingston University and are now returning to do a full-time undergraduate or postgraduate degree course. Please note that preparation courses, such as pre-sessional English or short courses, are not eligible (if you have taken a preparation course, you cannot use this to claim the bursary).

If you are looking to further your studies but lack the funding to do so, and you have a strong academic history which you have maintained throughout the year, you may be eligible to apply for a bursary. Bursaries are awarded to students currently in Matric and who will be studying at University or College the following year, as well as current tertiary student who cannot afford to continue paying for their studies.

The requirements are different for each bursary programme, and those requirements will be specified in each bursary listing, but here are some common requirements that are seen across most bursary programmes:

On each bursary listing, you will see instructions on how to apply for the specific bursary programme. Some bursaries have an online bursary application, while others require students to download an application form, which will then be submitted via email, fax, post or hand delivery.

Bursaries can be either partial or full. A partial bursary means only a certain amount or portion of your study-related expenses will be covered, while full-cover bursaries usually cover all study related expenses, including: tuition fees, examination fees, prescribed books and study materials, meals, accommodation, transport and sometime a laptop.

To apply for a bursary for the 2023/ 2024 academic year, please scroll down this page until you find your field of study, see which bursaries are open for your field and follow the detailed instructions to apply.Please note that you can apply for as many bursaries as you qualify for.Students can also visit the All bursaries currently open for application section.

The UBC Access Promise program automatically assesses bursary funding for eligible British Columbia students meeting the program criteria below. All eligible students are encouraged to submit an application to ensure maximum funding support.

There are 2 bursary application periods: winter and summer. To be eligible, you must apply for the bursary and enrolment must be confirmed with your province for your Canadian government student loan by the application deadline.

You will be notified of your bursary application outcome through email. If you've received a bursary, you will be notified by email with instructions on how to accept your offer. Bursary offers not accepted within the study period will be cancelled.

Keep all relevant receipts and documents for 18 months after you apply. Information provided on your bursary application can be verified before and after the bursary decision, and up to 18 months after you receive your funding.

If you are receiving a student loan through Quebec, Northwest Territories, or Nunavut Student Financial Assistance you will be required to upload your Notice of Assessment before your bursary application can be assessed. UBC will let you know when and how to submit any required documents.

Students receiving student loans from other provinces will need to make sure their loan has been confirmed by the bursary deadline, but are not required to upload their Notice of Assessment.

Yes, UBC offers a bursary for Winter Term 2 only for students with full-time Canadian government student loans starting in January. The application is open from December 15 to January 15 in the Student Service Centre (SSC). Students are encouraged to apply for their Term 2 loans by November 15. Confirmation of enrolment for your Canadian government student loan must be completed by January 15 to be considered for bursary eligibility. If January 15 falls on a weekend, the deadline will be the next working day. Students who have full-year loans starting in September are not eligible to apply for the Term 2-only bursary.

Those who are currently studying a full/part-time degree or equivalent are advised to wait until they graduate before applying for a bursary. This is so that bursaries are allocated to people who are available to take up full-time work as soon as possible.

Applications are assessed within one month. If any information is missing on your application we'll get in touch - but this may delay your application. If your application is successful, you'll receive a bursary offer from us. When you've met all the conditions outlined in your offer and provided the additional information requested, it will take at least 15 working days for the funds to reach your account. For more detail on the schedule see the "What happens next" section at the bottom of this page.

If you're applying for a bursary for several related costs, such as training with accommodation and travel, make one bursary application and itemise the different elements. See the evidence related to specific costs below.

If you receive bursary funding ScreenSkills will follow up with you, at intervals, to ensure that funding is being used as agreed and to monitor how the bursary support has helped your career progression. Taking part in this process will be part of your funding agreement with us.

ScreenSkills has a limited amount of bursary funds to invest in supporting screen industry skills development. If we find that a certain role, skill, demographic or type of training has received a disproportionate amount of bursary funding we reserve the right to adjust our application approvals to ensure a balanced funding distribution. We may not be able to offer you the maximum you have requested. This is to ensure funds are available throughout the year. Similarly, if we invest a larger amount than budgeted during one particular phase, we reserve the right to close applications for a period of time to ensure fair distribution of bursary funds during each financial year.

When you apply for a bursary we will request consent for your diversity information to be used, where appropriate, in the application assessment process. Diversity information is also used to help us monitor ScreenSkills bursary applications, take-up and benefit.

ScreenSkills is committed to ensuring that bursary funds reach the right people and are used in the right way. By making an application for a bursary you are agreeing that the personal information you supply can be shared with fraud prevention agencies who will use it to prevent fraud and money-laundering and to verify your identity. If fraud is detected your bursary application will automatically be declined. A record of any fraud or money laundering risk will be retained by the fraud prevention agencies, and may result in others refusing to provide services, financing or employment to you.

Students who have requested and been granted an admission deferral and attend in the winter semester of the application year may have one half of their entrance bursary offer deferred for the winter semester.

The amount you receive depends on the year that you start your QTS course. You do not get a bursary in every year of an undergraduate course. Depending on the type of course you do, you may get the bursary in your final year or final two years.

The Financial Assistance Profile application for bursary consideration will be available until October 31st. Students who do not apply by October 31st will have the opportunity to apply for bursary funding again in the second term from the first day of classes in January to February 28. 041b061a72
