Apply for or renew EMA
Studying at school or in home education
You need to apply through your local council. Each local council might have a different application process.
You might also be able to ask your school for an application form.
Studying at college
Coronavirus and EMA payments
Coronavirus (COVID-19) may stop you meeting your agreed attendance requirements if:
- you're self-isolating
- you have the virus
- your learning institution closes
If you are absent for any of these reasons, you'll still continue to get your EMA payments.
How long does the process take?
It depends if you complete your form properly and the date on which you apply. Your local council or college bursary office will be able to update you on your application progress.
