£30 school and college student grants

A reminder is going out to school and college students over the age of 16 that they may be entitled to Education Maintenance Allowance of £30 a week.

The allowance is paid every fortnight directly into the young person’s account, provided they attend school or college regularly, encouraging them to continue their education while at the same time giving them essential budgeting skills

EMA payments are managed by SBC on behalf of the Scottish Government.
