EMA & the Calday Grange 16-19 Bursary Fund
The Government has announced a £180 million bursary scheme to replace the Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA) & help the most vulnerable 16-19 years olds continue in full-time education. The scheme is made up of two parts – a guaranteed payment to a small group of the most vulnerable, worth more than anybody received under EMA, & a discretionary fund for schools to distribute. Full details of the scheme are available here on the Young People’s Learning Agency (YPLA) website.
Calday Grange has funds to help students starting full-time courses in September 2013 who may struggle with the cost of their studies.
Calday Grange 16-19 Bursary Fund
Calday Grange Sixth Form students aged 16-19 who might struggle with the cost of full-time education can apply to receive a Calday Grange 16-19 Bursary in one of two categories:
Students most in need will be eligible to receive a bursary of £1200 a year. This group includes:
- students in care
- care leavers
- students claiming income support
- disabled young people who receive Employment Support Allowance & Disability Living Allowance
Other students facing genuine financial difficulties may be awarded a bursary at the discretion of the school.
