What’s the application process?
Applications open now to coincide with the tertiary enrolment calendar. Where a learning institution is still finalising their 2020 courses, you should contact the provider to gather as much information as you can to help you fill in the application form. In these circumstances, the Grant Selection Committee may consider the option to provisionally award the grant to the applicant.
