Grants and funding available, and eligibility criteria for student transport to and from college or sixth form in North Lincolnshire.
Transport for students aged 16 to 19 to college or sixth form
Covid 19 has impacted heavily on all areas of our lives including school and college, and the next academic year will be challenging for us in different ways. In order to give choice and control to students and families in regards to their transport needs we will provide colleges with a travel grant to enable flexible transport options.
If you are applying to a college or school sixth form to continue your education post 16 you may be eligible for a travel grant of £315 (£105 per term) from the council to help with your transport costs.
Depending on where you study, your college or sixth form may add a further £105 (£35 per term), making a total of £420 per year.
The eligibility rules are given in more detail below.
To apply for the grant you should contact the college or sixth form you will be studying at.
Students who are unable to travel independently either by public transport or on foot, should read the information on the Post 16 transport for students with special educational needs and disabilities to college or sixth form page.
