The 16-19 Bursary Fund
The 16-19 Bursary Fund is a scheme to help young people facing financial hardship to stay in full time education. It replaces the Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA) Scheme.
For eligible students the fund can help towards the cost of essential course related costs such as travel to school, equipment, books, essential trips, school clothing and attending university/job interviews. It applies to expenses during the current academic year.
