Educational Maintenance Allowance (EMA)

This fact sheet explains how this benefit works and who is eligible for it. Basically, EMA is for 16 to 19 year olds from lower income families in full time education, or on certain training courses, and funds some of their day to day expenses. Students are eligible for weekly payments, plus possible bonuses and should apply as soon as possible, as payments cannot always be fully backdated.
