Frequently asked questions about bursaries

A bursary is a monetary payment given to students based on financial need. A bursary is designed to help cover educational expenses such as tuition fees.

Bursaries are awarded on the basis of financial need. All applicants are required to complete an application form which provides details of their income and capital. Where there is no financial need, no bursary can be given. The level of awards varies significantly and can be as much as 100%.

Applications for bursaries need to be submitted by 12 January for the year of entry, though applications at other times of year will be considered if funds allow. 

The main point at which bursaries are awarded is at the entry to S1 (12 years) in Scottish secondary education, known as Lower 4 at St George’s. In such cases, the award will continue throughout the student’s education at St George’s.  The level of award will be reviewed from time to time and there is an annual re-assessment of family income.
