    Depends on the bursary. You can either ask for a stated amount or just highlight what you need and they will decide the amount. Read about the terms of the bursary or ask them.

    If you need a specific amount, then apply for that. But do read what it says on the website as to how much they might offer. You will look silly applying for £200 if they say on the website they give grants of £25.

    Alternatively you can leave the amount blank and its likely they will give you what they typically give based on your request and how much money they typically give out.

    I would read what it says on the website.
    Detail what you claim is for tio give them an idea.
    Let them decide how much to award you(unless you have something specific in mind) as you might get more. They will only give yu what they typically can afford.

    The claim might be based on your income or that of your family, so you may need to provide evidence to show you match the criteria of people the fund is menat to help. Talking to the bursar is absolutely the best thing to do. Good luck..
