In 1845 the boy, who had been a "herd" on the farm, went for six months to the grammar school at Aberdeen and was there prepared for a university bursary, which was sufficient to pay his fees, but no more.
In 1838 he obtained the pension Suard, a bursary of 150o francs a year for three years, for the encouragement of young men of promise, which was in the gift of the academy of Besancon.
In 1857 he gained a bursary at Marischal College, and graduated M.A.
He managed, by undertaking private teaching and with the aid of a bursary, to go to the university of Aberdeen, where he took his M.A.
I have received a NHS bursary in the past, am I still entitled to a bursary?
