What is the new bursary?


EMA – transition arrangements

How much bursary will young people get?  

When can I apply for a bursary?

When the College is advised how much money is available we will update our information sheets on the web.  Go to this page for more information. 

If you get the transitional EMA support funds can you also apply for a bursary?

Yes. However College will take into account the fact that a young person is receiving regular weekly payments when determining what they should receive.

When will the money be available?

The new 16-19 Bursary Fund will start from September 2011.

I want to have a say in these changes – who do I contact?

The Government will now carry out an 8 week consultation on the scheme so the detailed arrangements can be finalised in time for allocations to be made to learning providers for the 2011/12 academic year.  The e-consultation is available at www.education.gov.uk/consultations
