Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI) is urging students who have yet to submit their applications for student grant funding for the 2015/2016 academic year to do so now. The deadline for applications is this Saturday.
SUSI is currently in its fourth year of operations and opened its 2015/2016 online application system, for new and renewal student grants, on April 23. To-date SUSI has received 85,000 applications.
“We are expecting to receive approximately 110,000 applications for the 2015/2016 academic year. We have received 85,000 applications to-date and we would urge students to apply before the deadline of August 1 to ensure that their applications receive priority,” advised
“After we receive online applications we write to students requesting supporting documentation. It is imperative that students get this requested documentation back to us within the specified timeframe otherwise there will be a delay in the processing of their applications,” he added.
SUSI is encouraging encourages students to visit its website www.susi.ie to review information about the eligibility criteria for grants.
