Can a mature student get funding if they've never been to university before?

I am an ethnic minority mature student who has never been to University, and I want to apply to Cambridge for a part-time/full time degree. Can I get funding as a mature student?

Student Funding information is at

You should be entitled to loans and grants as you've never been to university before, depending on your household income.

You will have to apply online through UCAS at www.ucas.com
You should familiarise yourself with the site.

I hope this is enough to get you started.
