When should I apply?
Which Application Deadline should I apply for?
There are four Application Deadlines each year:
- January 31
- April 30
- July 31
- October 31
For the course to be eligible for a certain Application Deadline, the date of course completion must fall in a period that extends from six months before the Application Deadline to six months after the Application Deadline.
You can apply for a course BEFORE you’ve completed it. Proof of successful course completion will be required in order to receive grant funding.
- DETERMINE the date you will finish your course. This is your “date of course completion”.
- COMPARE the “date of course completion” against the upcoming Application Deadlines to determine when to apply:
