If you haven’t already applied for a student grant, it’s not too late. The deadline for priority applications was in July, but applications can still be accepted, although they will not be processed until those received in July are sorted.

You can apply through SUSI, and you can get more information through our publication, The Rough Guide to Student Grant 2016.

 

Student Grants – don’t leave it too late

The closing date (August 1st) for student grant applications is fast approaching. Hopefully you have already registered with SUSI and are well on the way to getting your application sorted. If not, we have some information that might be useful.

If you are struggling with your application, you can contact or drop-in to YouthSpin at Crosscare – Bray Youth Service on Herbert Rd in Bray. We are there Tues-Thurs in St Bricin’s (beside the doctor’s surgery). We are on Facebook, Twitter and of course on the phone. We can also arrange to use Skype to discuss applications with students.

 

Rough Guide to College Grants

Crosscare Youth Information Service publish an at-a-glance guide to student grants which might be useful. We’ve attached both pages below as images, but also attached PDF copies for you to download.

Also attached is a PDF file called Student Financial Support, which gives you some more detail about financial support available to students.

Useful websites for information about student grants

The first place to go for student finance information is the Student Finance website, which has  comprehensive information about all types of grants and fees.

Grants are processed by a single body called SUSI who have a useful help-desk that you contact by phone on 0761 08 7874, or by Facebook or Twitter

A useful place to visit is the Student Finance forum on Boards.ie You can ask questions or just lurk and view questions by others. They also have forums on different educational institutions and for secondary students. Please be aware that we can make no guarantees about the accuracy of information on message boards.

The state website for citizens information also has a section on Student grants

Where else to go for financial support in Co Wicklow?

If you are living in a RAPID area of Bray you might be able to get a grant through the Bray Area Partnership

If you excel at sport, Wicklow County Council runs the Katie Taylor Bursary each year. Closing date for applications for 2014 has passed, but watch for details in May next year.
