The following documents must be sent with the application form:
- Motivation letter justifying the reasons for applying for the grant and explaining in depth the personal and career objectives and main career achievements that support the application.
- Two recommendation letters
- Additional documents or proof that may be required by the Grants Committee.
Grant award decision
The Grants Committee normally meets three times a year to make grant award decisions. Candidates will receive notification within 7 calendar days following these meetings. They will be notified if their application has been accepted or rejected, and, if applicable, the amount awarded. Candidates may not receive notification until the last Grants Committee meeting has been held, during which a final decision concerning applications will be made.
Candidates are advised to submit their applications as soon as possible, preferably at least six months prior to the start of the programmes as fewer grant funds are available as the year progresses.
In order to keep a grant which has been awarded, candidates must pay the pre-enrolment fee within fifteen calendar days from the date of the admission letter.
