Living Allowance Bursaries have in the past supported students at NSCD with the following:

  • Monthly grocery vouchers
  • Funds towards basic living expenses
  • I.T support (equipment)
  • Free School Lunches during term time

Applications for the Living Allowance Bursary have now closed for 2022/23 and will reopen in July 2023 for support in 2023/24.
