2. Information that you will need to provide
To complete the Application Form you will need to provide among other things your personal and educational details, details of current and previous financial support and requirements, and contacts for references. You may find it helpful to print the Application Form screens in order to collate the necessary information before completing the online form. If you do not provide full and accurate information requested in the Application Form that you submit, or if your application does not meet the eligibility conditions, it is likely that your application will not be considered for a grant.
