A bursary is available to help full-time higher education students from Scotland with their living costs. The bursary is non-repayable and can be applied for at the same time as applying for a student maintenance loan using the same application form. Depending on the total of your and your household’s income, you may be eligible to apply for a bursary. There are currently two bursaries available:
|£0 to £16,999||£1,750|
|£17,000 to £23,999||£1,000|
|£24,000 to £33,999||£500|
|£34,000 and above||£0|
You will be eligible to apply for the Independent Students’ Bursary of £750 a year if your household income is £16,999 or less a year.
