EMA is a weekly allowance of £30 which you may be able to get if you are:

  • aged 16 to 19
  • attend a Falkirk school, or
  • work under an Activity Agreement

Check if you are eligible by visiting the EMA Scotland website.

You'll need to meet the terms of your Learning Agreement, and will usually only get EMA for a week where you have 100% attendance.
