Students are invited to apply through the medium indicated by the Funder. Application submissions are assessed and evaluated by funders based on their own criteria and the information provided by the student. Application for funding does not guarantee any funding to students. Funders will communicate with successful recipients. Student must then make this funding known to SFA submitting a promissory letter or some form of proof of funding. SFA will then do verifications before treating the student as funded for registration and allowances purposes.
