Apply for a grant

Grants are awarded five times per year.  

The next closing dates for grant applications and references are 21 August and 31 October 2019.

To apply, read our application guidelines then complete an application form. We must also receive an academic reference.

Because of such high demand for our grants, we are not accepting applications for any university fees unless the course leads directly to employment.  We never give grants for PhDs.
