Educational Grants unit
The Grants Unit works in partnership with voluntary organisations to deliver quality services that are effective, efficient and meet the needs of local communities. For more information contact the Education Grants Development Officer on 020 7926 9480.
Student bursary scheme
If you are aged between 16 and 19 years old and face financial hardship while you are in full-time education you may be eligible to receive a bursary. The bursary scheme comes into affect from September 2011 and replaces the education maintenance allowance (EMA).
