- care leavers
- receiving Income Support, Universal Credit (UC) because they are financially supporting themselves, or
- receiving Employment and Support Allowance and Disability Living Allowance in their own right
A discretionary award is made to young people in a way that best fits the needs and circumstances of our students.
St John Rigby College’s criteria are as follows:

The discretionary award will be targeted towards those young people who face the greatest financial barriers to participation; such as the costs of transport, meals, books and equipment. Conditions for receiving the Bursary awards will be subject to student attendance and student engagement with their studies.
