A bursary is available to help full-time higher education students from Scotland with their living costs. The bursary is income assessed so if you want to be assessed for a bursary you must supply your assessment authority with information about your household income. The amount of bursary you will receive will depend on the level of your household income and the year you started university.
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.
The maximum bursary available for students studying at an institution outside of Scotland in 2012/13 is £2,150. The actual amount a student will receive will depend upon their household income.
