More information about the variable "bensta2": Education Grant other than a Student Loan or Tuition Fee Loan
Can I have more descriptive information about the educational grant variable "bensta2"? Does it refer to the maintenance grants students from low-income households are entitled to and which do not have to be repaid? Can you provide any external source of information about how grants are provided in the UK?
Thank you for your help

The information that is provided to respondents when they are asked these questions is in the questionnaire. No additional information is provided.
In any questionnaire file, you will find a question named BENSTA which asks respondents to choose form among 8 income sources. They can choose more than one source. As the second income source is "2 Education Grant other than a Student Loan or Tuition Fee Loan", the response is recoded in the variable BENSTA2 = 0 "Not mentioned" and 1 "Mentioned".
