Kildare Youth Services will hold an information evening about student grants at the Canal Stores, Basin Street, Naas, on June 27 at 7pm.
The new Online Application System for Student Grants for 2012-2013 academic year is now open.
All new applications will now need to be made online to a single awarding authority, Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI) through www.studentfinance.ie.
Students are asked to apply early and it’s not necessary to know the precise course before making an application.
A SUSI Support Desk will provide extended opening hours for email queries at firstname.lastname@example.org and telephone queries at 0761 08 7874.
SUSI also has a mentoring network to assist applicants who might have access issues using the online system.
KYS and the Youth Information Centre (YIC) are part of this mentoring network. Trained YIC staff can assist in making the online grant application. Please contact the YIC to make an appointment.
