To open on 20th August

Are you struggling to pay for travel costs to and from college?
Do you need support with the cost of equipment?
Are you between the ages of 16-21 and living in Dorset?
Do you need a top up to the bursary you already receive from the college?

If you have answered ‘yes’ to any of the above you may be eligible for support from one of our Bursary Funds – the DCF Bursary Scheme and the Superior STEM Bursary Fund which will open for applications on 20th August.

The Superior STEM Bursary Fund, established by local engineering company Superior, will focus on supporting students aged 16-21 with grants of up to £1,500 who are undertaking a STEM (science, technology, engineering or mathematics) course at either Bournemouth and Poole or Brockenhurst College. The fund will only support students from a particular area in Dorset covering Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch, Wimborne and the surrounding areas.

Support of up to £1,000 is available from the Foundation’s own DCF Bursary Scheme which supports young people aged 16-21 from across Dorset, studying vocational courses (including traineeships) with six local colleges – Bournemouth & Poole College, Kingston Maurward College, Brockenhurst College and Weymouth College, Yeovil College and Wiltshire College (Salisbury Campus).

Both the Superior STEM Bursary Fund and the DCF Bursary Scheme assist young people who are particularly disadvantaged.
