A new fund has been launched in the North East to help sixth form students from low-income backgrounds or in the care system to apply to Russell Group universities.

The Atom Futures Fund has been launched by app-based bank Atom in partnership with the County Durham Community Foundation in a mission to break down some of the barriers preventing young people from reaching their full potential. The first part of the Atom Futures Fund offers a £250 financial incentive to at least 20 eligible Year 13 students in County Durham who apply for any course at a Russell Group University.
