Haringey Fairer Education Fund
Applications for Haringey’s Fairer Education Fund have now closed. We notified applicants at the end of January 2021 about the outcome of their applications.
If you have any queries please contact us at email@example.com
This year Haringey has launched the Fairer Education Fund, a new programme of support for young people applying to higher education. It sets out to make access to higher education fairer, as part of the council’s wider ambitions to create a more equal borough.
Whether it’s University that you’re contemplating, or business school, or creative college, or another kind of higher education, you can get support through Haringey’s Fairer Education Fund for courses beginning in autumn 2021.
If you haven’t thought about going on to university (or any other higher education course), or if you aren’t sure whether it’s affordable or you just aren’t sure quite what you’d like to do after school, we hope you have put your name down to see if we can support you and how.
- Any Haringey resident whose household has a combined income below £30,000 a year
- Anyone applying for a higher education course (including university, business school, creative or technical college) that starts in autumn 2021
- Anyone entering higher education for the first time
- Anyone aged 25, or under, on 1 September in the year that they are going to university
Course application fees and campus visits
The following costs will be reimbursed:
- UCAS application fee
- two university campus visits or open days (up to £50 per trip)
Bursary grants to support living costs
A limited number of bursary grants are available, but we do encourage all those who meet the eligibility criteria above to apply as we may be able to signpost you to bursaries and grants from other institutions.
Bursary grant recipients will:
- receive a monthly payment to help cover living costs for the duration of their course.
- be offered a paid summer placement with a council department or partner organisation relevant to their chosen course (after the second year of their course).
Mentoring and support
We will offer you a mentor from summer 2021 to support you with the transition to higher education.
