The purpose of the 1916 Bursary Funding is to encourage participation and success by students from sections of society that are significantly under-represented in higher education due to socio-economic disadvantage. The South Cluster of Higher Education Institutions has been awarded 35 bursaries in total. Up to seven bursaries will be made available for ITT students. Applications for 2018/19 will open shortly. Please check this link regularly for updates.
