We've just added some information on our website about the new scheme to support bereaved Service children planning to undertake further education.
The scheme delivers the Coalition Government’s undertaking to provide university and further education scholarships for the children of Service personnel who have been killed on active duty since 1990.
Armed Forces Bereavement Scholarship Scheme was launched in April and is designed to enable these young people to get a first degree. In order to get to university they must first follow the academic stream at school and a Further Education scholarship will help these children to stay in school to obtain a university place.
The scholarship is not a free university place but a contribution towards the tuition fees and living costs.
Further information on eligibility and how to apply can be found here. It's important to read this information fully, as it contains information about potential funding for the 2010 - 2011 academic year we're currently in.
