The young people applying must be residents of a specific area in Dorset (check through the link) and plan to attend a course at Bournemouth and Poole or Brockenhurst College on a STEM (science, technology, engineering or mathematics) course.
The scheme is intended to:
- Assist and support individuals and ensure they are able to attend further education
- Assist those who are particularly disadvantaged and least likely to participate (care leavers or cared for young people; those who have caring responsibilities for other members of their family; live on a family income of less than £21,000; disabled young people and those with special educational needs)
What can be applied for?
Grants can only be used to support educational or training needs.
Examples include the full cost or a contribution towards:
- Required equipment or clothing
- Course fees (depending on the age of the applicant)
- Travel costs
- IT equipment
How to Apply:
Before making an application students should first approach their college for a bursary. If they then need additional support they may apply for a Superior STEM bursary.
The Fund is now closed for applications. Applicants who submitted their bursary requests by noon on 6th October will hear back by the end of the month.
The fund will then re-open for applications on 20th November 2017 and close in January 2018.
Applications will have to be approved by the student welfare liaison office of either Bournemouth and Poole or Brockenhurst College.
