Check the Application and Funding Process

Funding is allocated to the college, not the student. The college has full discretion in decisions on the allocation of the Fund at local level, and remains responsible for the management of the funding throughout the duration of each year. The applicants are generally not required to organise the services/supports or source equipment themselves – this is done by the college in consultation with the applicants.

There are two key stages to the claims process: a first-time claim and a claim for continuing students. Click on either button below to find out more about the process.
