If your household has an income of less than £32,000 per year, you are studying at North Lindsey College, live more than 3 miles from the College and you have submitted a Financial Assistance Application (please see the Financial Assistance page), the 16-19 Discretionary Bursary may be able to help with your contribution to transport costs for the year – saving you £90!
For students aged 16-18 years old
We understand that your transport costs and requirements can vary depending on where you live and how you may decide to travel to College, so to simplify things for 2020/21 we are introducing a Travel Bursary which aims at removing barriers around travel and helps towards your costs. Which means you may be eligible for the travel bursary to help with costs even if you travel to college by bike, or car – so click on the Travel Bursary Application Form below, and we will take it from there and confirm if you are able to get travel support.
