About notification of approval and required items necessary to receive Grant payment.
For complete understanding of the grant process from eligibility to application to payment, please read the following in order:
When will I be notified if I’ve been approved for a Grant?
The Selections Committee of the Foundation reviews each application individually and will notify applicants in writing within six (6) weeks after the Application Deadline.
The Selections Committee will approve, deny, or may require more information.
Information regarding application status will not be released over the phone. Decisions of the Selections Committee are final.
How do I receive my Grant cheque?
In the letter from the Selections Committee, approved applicants will receive a list of required items that must be submitted before a grant cheque is disbursed.
Total grant funds are not distributed until the Foundation receives:
- original tuition receipt(s)
- copy(s) of proof(s) of successful course completion
- any other item(s) the Foundation requests from the applicant
DO NOT send these items with your Application Form.
Applicants approved for grants over $1000 may receive partial funding before course completion by submitting verification of enrollment and original tuition receipt(s).
The required items must be received by the Foundation before the date indicated on the letter or your grant will be forfeit.
When will I receive my Grant cheque?
Grant cheques are processed in the last week of every month and mailed out when processing is finalized. We cannot honour requests to speed up the processing of grant funds.
Grant awards are non-transferable to any other individual or course.
