What’s Replacing EMA?
The government has announced a £180m bursary scheme to replace EMA (Education Maintenance Allowances) which ended last year. The new bursary will start in September 2011
12,000 vulnerable teenagers *(In care, care leavers and Severely Disabled) will be given £1,200 per year (total of £15m)
An additional £165m will be given to colleges as a discretionary fund to pay low-income students transport, books and food cost. Transport and book cost are seen as a key barrier to education for low-income students.
