Educational Maintenance Allowance 2017 - 18

The Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA) scheme is available to students who stay on at school after they reach the statutory school leaving age.

The scheme, which is funded by the Scottish Government, could benefit you by £30 per week if you returned to school in August, depending on the household income of your parent(s) or carer(s) and how many brothers or sisters you have.

If you think you might qualify, please visit the EDC website to complete an application.  Further information is available by clicking on the links below.
