University bursaries: which institutions are best?

The BBC reports that new university bursary offers in the UK may not be attracting additional students from poorer backgrounds. Details here. It is reported that bursaries for the very poorest often come to about £935.

This figure strikes me as particular low compared with US universities both in real terms and as a percentage of total tuition bills. Would anyone know of any data to confirm this suspicion?
