The impact of bursaries on DWP Benefits
Receipt of bursary funding does not affect receipt other means tested benefits paid to familes such as Income Support, Jobseekers Allowance, Child Benefit, Working Tax Credit and Housing Benefit.
However if the student is in receipt of Disability Living Allowance or Personal Independence Payments, and Employment Support Allowance or in receipt of Universal Credit, parents can no longer receive certain household/family benefits for that child e.g Child Benefit.
