When to apply, and when to expect a response

We only make one round of grants per academic year.  Applications for awards for degree courses starting in the academic year that begins in September 2023 have now opened. You have until June 5 2023 to get your application to us. This round includes Open University courses beginning in October 2023 and February 2024. If you have any questions about our form, about how to apply to university, or how to apply for a student loan, you can contact us on 07747 365037 or at office@longfordtrust.org

Successful applicants will be notified by the end of June 2023. We regret that we are not able to acknowledge receipt of every application.  Successful applicants will be invited to a face-to-face meeting with a team member to conform their award.
