The bursary covers a study period of up to a year and can support tenants with the cost of the learning itself, or if you are already involved in an area of learning it can help to fund books, equipment, travel costs, childcare or other living costs that will help you to complete a period of learning.

To be eligible to apply for the bursary, tenants must be aged 16 or over and housed by a social landlord like Thirteen. You must be using the bursary to enhance your skills to further your development. This can be at any level.

The NHC will award 20 bursaries. If you are a Thirteen tenant and are interested in applying, please give us a call on 0300 111 1000 in the first instance. You can find out more about the bursary by visiting the NHC website at www.bursary.northern-consortium.org.uk
