When to apply, and when to expect a response

We only make one round of grants per academic year. All applications are for awards for degree courses starting in the academic year that begins in September 2022. All applications must be received by the deadline of Friday June 4 2021. This round includes Open University courses beginning in October 2021 and February 2022. Successful applicants will be notified by the end of June 2022. We regret that we do not have sufficient office resources to be able to acknowledge receipt of every application, but once it has been processed, you will hear from us.
