University Bursaries

What is the Plymouth University care leavers bursary? 


Our care leaver bursary is an annual £2,000 non-repayable grant.  It’s available to Plymouth University students who are care leavers or are current Foyer (or similar residential housing) residents and who satisfy the eligibility criteria referred to below. The bursary is paid in two instalments: £1,000 in the autumn term and £1,000 in the spring term.

The bursary is in addition to any other entitlement to financial support you may have and is available for each year of your course, subject to attending regular update meetings and meeting other conditions mentioned below.  You’ll need to provide evidence of your status as a care leaver/Foyer (or similar) resident – a letter from your personal adviser, social worker or pathway worker is ideal.
