    Bursaries
    Rugby’s bursary income is received from restricted and endowed funds. The annual cost of bursaries (not including the Arnold Foundation, which is funded through donations), is £2.6 million. Pupils do not need to win a scholarship in order to be considered for a bursary. The school’s Foundation Award is aimed at day pupils living within a 20-mile radius of the school and carries a five per cent fee remission (this can increase up to 100 per cent through means-tested bursary assistance), while the new 1823 Bursary Fund will offer means-tested places (of up to 100 per cent of fees and extras) for boys or girls who show significant promise and aptitude for sport and a commitment to rugby.
