This is what are you applying for

In the application you apply for basic support and an eventual additional loan for school fees. You may choose to apply for only the part of the basic support that can be converted to a grant, or the entire loan.

The application also applies to other grants and loans that only certain groups are entitled to. These are child grant, additional loan and refugee grant.

There are separate applications for parental grant and additional grant due to disability.
