16 to 19 Bursary Fund – Recycled Funds after 30 April 2015

Institutions are expected to ‘recycle’ any unused vulnerable student 16 to 19 Bursary funding that they have claimed during the current academic year.

However, should an institution have any surplus funding that has previously been paid to them for vulnerable student bursaries, they should use this to pay discretionary bursaries after 30 April 2015.

If an institution uses these unspent funds in this way and then identifies a new vulnerable student, they should make a claim for funding in the usual way, via the funding claim form. They would then put ‘0’ in the Recycled Funding column of the form.
