This is the latest release in the series: Welsh Government Learning Grants (further education)
The data, based on applications received by 31 July 2021, are correct as at 18 October 2021.
In total, 4,495 students in further education (FE) applied for a Welsh Government Learning Grant (WGLG) in 2020/21, a decrease of 15% on 2019/20. Of these 3,725 applications were successful, a decrease of 16% on 2019/20. This resulted in £4.2 million being paid out in WGLGs to FE students in 2020/21, compared to the £4.9 million that was paid out in 2019/20. 3,500 (94%) of successful applications were from full-time students and 210 (6%) of successful applications were from part-time students.
The proportion of successful applications from full-time students remains high at around 97%, with the corresponding figure for part-time students at 85%. 2,570 (74%) of successful full-time applications and 150 (70%) of successful part-time applications were from students with a residual income of £6,120 or less, and were therefore awarded the full grant amounts. 1,480 (54%) of successful full-time applications and 50 (39%) of successful part-time applications were from students aged 21 or under.
