Education Maintenance Allowance

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 complete the EMA application form and its supporting documents in the attached document section.

Alternatively you can take your completed application and documents to any East Dunbartonshire Council HUB
