Education Maintenance Allowances (EMAs) give financial support to eligible 16 to 19 year olds who want to continue learning.
If you’re eligible for Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA), you need to complete the following every academic year:
- a learning agreement
- an EMA application form
EMA is a weekly payment of £30, paid every 2 weeks in arrears.
If you qualify, you need to apply direct to your school or college.
