The British Army has developed an initiative called the Further Education Bursary Scheme (FEBS).
The aim of the scheme is to help young adults in the 16 to 32 age group prepare for a career in the Army. This bursary financially rewards students for attending college, completing a relevant vocational qualification and pursuing a career in the Army at the end of their time at college.
Those selected to be award holders will receive £1,000 for each year of their studies at college (subject to meeting commitments), then a further £1,000 upon completion of Army basic training.
To check eligibility criteria, plus the terms and conditions, please call Student Services, the Head of Uniformed Public Services on 0191 518 8332 or check out www.army.mod.uk and search the site for FEBS.
