Educational Maintenance Allowance 2010-11

Please note all eligible students for the EMA for session 2010-11 should receive an application form and letter from East Lothian Council before the end of July.  Please note the following changes to the EMA for session 2010-11 have been announced by the Government (see extract below);

“The first change is that, from academic year 2010-11, bonus payments will no longer be part of the programme.The second is that, given the anticipated pressures on the budget this financial year, the EMA programme will be reviewed in December 2010. Any awards issued to young people for academic year 2010-11 are therefore only guaranteed until December. I fully appreciate that the mid-year review point may cause additional work for your staff and uncertainty both for staff and young people.”
